About Karla Stapes, ARNP

Having been in healthcare for more than 30 years, Karla enjoys its unpredictability and the rewarding feeling she gets when helping patients. “I’m a big supporter and believer in The Iowa Clinic’s mission statement – I enjoy providing patient-focused, quality care,” she says. If Karla weren’t a nurse practitioner, she might be a chocolatier or a wedding consultant. Something few people know about Karla is that Halloween is her favorite holiday. In her free time, she enjoys vacationing, camping, fishing, shopping and spending time with her granddaughter.
