Karen Weiss, PNP

Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

My name is Karen Weiss and I am a board certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I was born and raised in a suburb north of Boston but decided to travel west for graduate school at the University of California. I received my master’s degrees in Public Health and Public Policy in 1991, and Advanced Practice Nursing in 1998. I also completed a fellowship in adolescent medicine. In 2007, I moved with my partner and two sons to South Portland, where we have lived happily ever since.

I feel incredibly lucky to have a job that, after more than 20 years, I still look forward to going to every day. My practice includes children of all ages, from infancy through adolescence. I have a special interest in working with teens. The teen years can be difficult ones, especially for young women. By providing a combination of both practical tools and emotional support, I try to help teens negotiate the many twists and turns along the road to adulthood. I offer guidance and resources to parents as well to help them support their teens along the way.

I also love working with new parents and their infants. There is little that compares to the highs and lows of those first few years of parenting. It’s a joy and an honor to share that with my families.
