My Story

Fifteen years ago, Karen Campbell Wilkinson, a graduate of The Ohio State University, gave her husband David the choice to medicate her or give her sunshine. Since that statement was made, Karen and her husband have resided in sunny Naples, Florida, with their two sons and rescue dogs. Having worked as a respiratory therapist for 15 years at Level One Trauma centers, she is experienced in the process of organ procurement and transplantation, as well as responding to emergent life and death decisions. Karen has since retired from healthcare and shifted into real estate, representing customers in buying and selling homes and setting up medical practices in the sunshine state.
