Kari L. Odenath, PA-C, MPAP

Kari Odenath has lived in Ventura County most of her life. She is a graduate of Newbury Park High School and California Lutheran University and was on the volleyball team at both institutions. She graduated from CLU in 2002 with a major in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine. During her time at CLU she also worked as an athletic trainer for the track and women's basketball teams, coached high school girl's club volleyball and worked as a personal trainer at a local gym.

Because of her interests in athletics and medicine, Mrs. Odenath decided to pursue a career as a physician assistant. Mrs. Odenath received her training at the University of Southern California and gained further experience in orthopedics at Los Angeles County Hospital, a level I trauma center. During this time, she assisted the orthopedic doctors with emergency room evaluations, surgery, hospitalized patient care and the evaluation and management of patients at the outpatient clinic.

After three years of study, Kari graduated from USC with her Master of Physician Assistant Practice degree in 2006. She was certified by the National Committee for the Certification of Physician Assistants after completing a comprehensive examination and was then licensed by the State of California.
