Our Clinical Team
Karen Dorsing - Dietitian
Karen grew up in a logging town in the foothills of Mount Rainier. She graduated from Central Washington University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Food & Nutrition and completed the Miami Valley Hospital dietetic internship program in Dayton, Ohio in 1997. Karen has worked in a variety of clinical settings–hospital, hospice, home health and outpatient dialysis. With almost two decades as a registered dietitian behind her, Karen finds Mira Vista her most ‘at home’ setting since January 2014 with it’s true team work environment which she highly values. She enjoys meeting with residents and their families to find what works for them because everyone has different preferences and tastes for food as well as nutritional goals. Her goal for residents is to promote adequate nutritional intake for healing the body and energy to participate in therapies. Karen has been married to her husband Dan since 2006 and has two young children and two rambunctious cats Gracie and Tiger.
