Karen Nelson, MD, has been with the Medical College of Wisconsin since 2008, but transferred to the Community Memorial Residency for its opening in 2017. She is married and has two dogs that keep her busy running to daycare and obedience classes. Her and her husband are very involved in their Streetlife Ministry, and when not doing that, like to take trips to their recently purchased Nelson Shine Farm where they plan to try their hands at a little bit of farming.
