Karnesha first belonged to the Telemetry Unit team of Staff Nurses from February 2013 to December 2014. After a brief hiatus, she returned to the Telemetry Unit as a Staff Nurse in May 2015 and now assists as a Relief Charge Nurse and mentor for new staff.

Karnesha lives in her hometown of Hammond and values time spent with her husband Rickey and their 18-month-old daughter, Karis.
