Karen Martinot, DNP, WHNP, IBCLC
Arizona State University
From a young age, I was interested in science and helping people and I knew working in healthcare would be the perfect fit for me. My nursing background taught me the importance of care for patients as a whole and because of that, I was really drawn to Mountain Park and the integrated healthcare model.
I try to empower my patients through education but also by listening to them and really understanding their needs. My patients are experts on themselves and it’s important for us to work together to make a plan to achieve their healthcare goals. I am also an international board certified lactation consultant and available to help mothers with preparing for breastfeeding or managing breastfeeding challenges or complications.
If I wasn’t working in healthcare, I would be a teacher.
