Raised in southwestern Pennsylvania, Dr. Karen Fancher studied pharmacy at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh but was lured away by the sunny skies of Florida shortly after graduation. She spent 10 years in Tampa, Florida, and during that time acquired an insightful daughter, a kindhearted son, a Midwestern husband and a spoiled cat (but not in that order). In 2010, the entire crowd relocated home to Pittsburgh. She is currently a professor in Duquesne University’s School of Pharmacy, where she teaches oncology. When she’s not on an adventure with her family, you can find her cooking, reading or daydreaming about musical legend Sting.
