Kelly K. Campbell, RN, BSN, CP, CCM, CNLCP, CLCP, Founder
After a career in healthcare spanning over 20 years, Kelly realized the value she could provide at the intersection of the medical and legal industries—she decided to create CARDINAL LifeCare Consulting. Her experience working at a national clinical level as a nurse and perfusionist has made her an expert on policy procedures, orientations, standards of care and more.
During her years as a clinical specialist, Kelly participated in the first robotic heart surgery in the nation, including the development of an international clinical outcomes study.
As a sales manager and educator, Kelly has worked with executives, physicians, managers, surgeons, specialists, nurses and more to convert them to new, innovative techniques. She applies these same skills daily as a life care planner to ensure she presents juries with facts in the clearest, most effective way.
