Get to Know our SRH Staff: Karol Yeager, Ambulatory Care

What is your role at the hospital? What do you do on a daily basis? 
I am the nurse coordinator for the two non-surgical sports medicine physicians in Frisco. I handle the daily coordination of patients, orders, education, referrals and help the clinic run as smoothly as possible.
 
What led you to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children? How long have you worked here?
I volunteered at the hospital during nursing school and fell in love with it. I have been here for six months.
 
What do you enjoy most about Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children?
I really enjoy the success stories, as well as being able to be a part of helping kids get back to being their best! The atmosphere here is so kind. I love being part of such a positive environment where everyone is helpful and family oriented.
 
What was your first job? What path did you take to get here?
My first job was a lifeguard and swim instructor. 
 
My path wasn’t very direct, but what matters is that I ended up here. My first degree was in kinesiology/health. Years later, I went back to school and earned another degree - this time in nursing. During nursing school, I volunteered at the hospital and fell in love. When I graduated, I started working in the Pediatric ICU, which I have a heart and passion for, and worked there for eight years. After that, I dabbled in school nursing and then found my way here!
 
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Travel, spending time with family/friends, baking, trying new restaurants and watching sports.
 
Three words to best describe you:
Loyal, kind, funny
 
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Probably own a bakery.
 
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
I went for a ride in one of the Goodyear blimps!
