Karen Cooper


Originally from Charlotte, NC, Karen took a detour to NYC for college and stayed there for 12 years before moving back to the South in 2001. Now living in Clemmons, Karen can be found hanging out with her husband, Phillip, sons Max and Sean, and Australian Shepherd, Sunshine. She has two bachelor’s degrees, one in Business and one in Nursing. In fact, she went to Nursing School at age 41 after a long career behind a desk which she says was a dream come true. She loves being a nurse, working in the hospital and having a direct impact on people’s lives. Karen has always loved words and language and says writing has always been her creative outlet. She’s a proud member of the Forsyth Magazines writing team. When not writing or nursing, Karen likes to watch her son play tennis and try our new restaurants or recipes.
