Carol Stamper

Carol is a 32 year veteran of emergency room nursing. She has seen every medical crisis our area has experienced: deadly flu, the opioid epidemic, many car crash victims, and now this. She’s close to retirement but will not back off— a true medical professional with heart and compassion.

She’s a mother of two sons, a wife, and a former MSU volleyball player. She also volunteers to coach club teams, bakes birthday cakes for underserved children, and people living in nursing homes. She loves her huge, extended family and her community.
