Personal Side of Dr. Karen James
Karen James has somehow managed to find balance among her lives as a physician, professor, wife, mom, and bicycle enthusiast.
A Washington native, she takes every opportunity to get outside, whether it’s for hiking, backpacking, or working in the garden. She’s also a bit of a die-hard cyclist, racing at the Marymoor Park Velodrome in Redmond during the summer or entering cyclocross races in the winter.
Yet, the center of her life isn’t her job, her teaching, or her hobbies. It’s her husband, David, and daughter, Ella. As a family-medicine physician, Dr. James fully appreciates the value of a healthy family, and she has made her own the highest priority.
