Meet Our Team

Kara – RN, BSN & Spa Manager

Originally from Brandon, SD, I headed north to SDSU, later transferring to DSU in Madison, SD where I received my bachelor’s in management & marketing. Following, I obtained three certifications through AAPC in medical coding, auditing, and physician management, which led me to my coding & auditing specialist role. Seven years later, I decided to pursue my BSN through SDSU (Go Jacks!) and began my nursing career on the surgical trauma floor. While working in the hospital, I was given the opportunity to step into the nursing and management role here at Live in 2022 and transitioned from floor nursing to urgent care. Currently, I am pursuing what I hope is my final degree (ha!) for Nurse Practitioner through Clarkson College in Omaha. The Sioux Falls Live team is ready to get you feeling your best and is happy to assist in whatever way we can! We hope to see you soon!


I grew up in Northwest Iowa, the daughter of a veterinarian. I started my career in Sioux Falls, then moved to Omaha where I spent the last 30 years raising two daughters and working as an Account Executive for a FinTech company. The opportunity to bring IV Therapy to the Sioux Falls area brought me back.


Having grown up in South Dakota, I know the value of hard work, integrity, and family. I was raised on a Dairy Farm in Milbank before moving to Omaha to attend Creighton University. Being able to help those in need is the top priority for me and is why I moved to Sioux Falls to purchase a Home Instead Senior Care franchise in 2019. In 2022, I decided to purchase the Live Hydration Spa Franchise to be able to provide even more services to the Sioux Falls community.
