  • Karl Larsen

    Managing Director
    My life dream of helping people in need was realized with the formation of BrightsStar Care of Bellingham/Mt. Vernon in July of 2021. I’ve enjoyed 39-years of commercial, industrial and institutional success and am honored to lead our talented home care team as CEO/Owner. I recognize the importance of providing safe and effective care as a result of my long career and family experiences with many hospitals and nursing facilities. I’m a chemist and graduate of Northwest University, with a degree in Business Management. I really believe the BrightStar Care model helps people realize a higher quality of life with proactive solutions that maintain their dignity and independence within their own homes. I’m Happily married with 6 children and reside in Bellingham, WA. In my spare time, I love to sportfish and hike with my wife, kids and our loyal hunting dogs - Marco and Polo.
