Karen spent her formative years in Iowa and is a proud graduate of Iowa
State University with a degree in Finance. After almost 12 years of trading
commodities and various sales positions in the Midwest she decided with
her husband to pull up stakes and move West to his hometown of Cody.
She and her husband Jay Nielson are involved in many community organizations
including the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Sleeping Giant Ski Area
and Zipline and Christ Episcopal Church. Together they have two energetic
boys and enjoy spending family time playing games, traveling and enjoying
this beautiful area. We have been thankful for West Park Hospital now
Cody Regional Health on many occasions.
