Karen Wilkins.

Office Manager

Born into a Naval family in Honolulu Hawaii, I have seen several corners of the United States throughout the years. At age 5 we were transferred to California, where I spent much of my youth showing horses in the Norco area, and eventually attending Chaffey College. Upon my marriage I moved to Missouri with my husband where I became the Assistant Manager of a retail store and had my two children, Ken and Michelle. During my time in the Show Me State I worked in retail, managed a Tracker Boats manufacturing facility as a QA Manager, and finally began my career in healthcare. I started this journey as a receptionist in a pediatrics clinic for 5 Doctors, and worked my way into an office management role there. I later transferred to a new pediatric clinic, where I operated as the Office Manager, and filled roles in the Urgent Care Clinic in that same building as needed.

Once my children left home I followed my daughter to Tennessee where I accepted a position in an ophthalmology clinic; I spent 4+ years there training staff, and working alongside a fantastic team of medical professionals. In 2017 though I returned home to California to care for my mother, who recently celebrated her 90th Birthday. Being back in the area I grew up in, close to my family has been fantastic, and finding Kinematics has been an amazing fit.

Matt, and the Kinematics team have given me an incredible opportunity to help them, help our patients. Each team member shows up to work daily with an incredible attitude, ready to serve the community and I couldn’t ask for a better place, or people of which to spend my days with. It’s always been a passion of mine to help people, and to watch them heal has always brought me great joy.

In my time outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family, talking walks with my beagle, and gardening.
