Karen Selby is a registered nurse and a Patient Advocate at The Mesothelioma Center. She worked in several subspecialties within nursing before joining Asbestos.com in 2009. Her surgical and oncologic background prepared her well for outreach to mesothelioma patients.
She has her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of South Alabama and her MBA from the University of Central Florida.
As a past director of a tissue bank, she recognizes that each patient is different and has their own set of unique needs. Karen’s goal is to determine how she can help each patient best and then give them the tools they need to fight cancer: knowledge, hope and ongoing emotional support.
Karen is a member of the oldest bicycle racing team in Central Florida — the Orlando Velo Cycling Team, founded in 1989. Asbestos.com sponsors her team, which competes nearly every weekend. Her cycling days actually began long ago, in Baltimore in 1986 when her roommate got her interested in triathlons.
Karen graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing
She has worked as a transplant nurse and was once a director of a human tissue bank
Karen is part of Asbestos.com's cycling team, which races to help raise awareness of mesothelioma
