Coffey PROfile

Karen Craddock

Senior Editor

I'm the editor of several client publications. I also oversee creation of original content for a number of Coffey libraries. Each publication and project has its own goals, vision and flavor, which makes for a stimulating and rewarding job.

Part of my job is to stay on top of what's happening in the medical field. It's a natural fit for me. I really enjoy learning about all aspects of medicine—from prevention to treatment. I occasionally get a story request from a client on a topic I know nothing about. My first thought is, "This is going to be fun!" And off I go to learn more.

Working with clients has given me a great appreciation of the valuable services they provide in their communities. There have been times when editing a patient profile story has brought tears to my eyes. I feel honored to be part of a team that helps tell these and other important stories.

Karen: Has a fierce upper cut. (She does kickboxing for fun and fitness.) Reads cookbooks like novels and sometimes even cooks from them. Once went grocery shopping with a top Harvard cardiologist and wrote a story about it.
