Karen Struck grew up a few home runs away from Fenway Park. After years as a critical care nurse and earning a graduate degree in exercise physiology from UCLA, she became a national consultant in the prevention of medical errors. Many hours in airports and train stations lead to her first script, Charlie and Me, which aired on Hallmark Channel in 2008 and was a Humanitas Prize finalist. She subsequently wrote two more Hallmark films and co-wrote A Girl’s Best Friend, which aired on UP Television in January 2015. In 2012, she wrote a pilot that was read by David E. Kelley, who was developing a drama series, Monday Mornings, with Sanjay Gupta, M.D. for TNT. During the meeting with Kelley, her contact lens popped out and she couldn’t see him. Still, she was hired. After she found her contact, she went on to write six credited episodes with Kelley, one of which was a Humanitas Prize finalist.
