Karen Measells

Karen-MeasellsI have worked in healthcare for 12 years in several capacities, and with Wyatt Matas for the past 6 years. My main role at Wyatt Matas is to help clients prepare their business for sale or capital infusion by helping owners highlight and fortify their strengths before reaching the negotiating table.

Much of my career has been spent advising hospital department leaders on opportunities to increase quality of care, operational efficiency, and reimbursements. As a consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton, I researched the effectiveness of telehealth programs for the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. While working at the Advisory Board Company, I networked within our extensive membership of healthcare leaders to determine best practices for quality, efficiency and growth. I distilled key lessons from many hospitals at the forefront of healthcare and disseminated those lessons to our wider membership. Earlier in my career as an industrial engineer, I performed on-the-ground work to optimize efficient treatment at hospitals.

Degrees and Personal
In 2006, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s of Science in Industrial Engineering. During my schooling, I received numerous scholarships and awards, including the Outstanding Graduate award from the Industrial Engineering department. Prior to my degree from USF, I also earned a bachelor’s of arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I was also a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

In my personal time, I enjoy competing in triathlons, and Chip and I enjoy spending time outdoors and with our three children.
