Our Team, Our History
A Simple Idea with a Big Impact
PA and NP World has helped a countless number of professionals find careers and employers find their ideal candidates. From the very beginning, the site has always been about serving the PA and NP communities. We pride ourselves on our amazing team, quick turn around, and knowing our clients on a personal level.
After graduating from PA School in 2002, Karen Fields, along with her new graduate friends, were having a difficult time navigating through the job search arena and finding PA jobs. Karen’s father, Bill, recognized the challenge his daughter and her friends were facing and was determined to come up with a solution. The answer was PA World – an online job board dedicated to assisting PA professionals seeking a career.
At the time, online job boards were at their infancy, and Bill, being the entrepreneur and tech loving guy he was, built the webpage for PA jobs and started scouring the internet for job openings, emailing them to PA professionals in search of careers on a regular basis. Soon the page grew and he added similar services for NP professionals, quickly becoming the leading job boards for PAs and NPs.
Bill, a combat trained Medic and Psychiatric specialist in the U.S. Army (’64-’67), has enjoyed working in the medical field and spent his career working with people in the medical field in various ways, from interpersonal counseling work to advertising and even hosting a radio show. He founded PA World and NP World first and foremost to serve PAs and NPs, helping them find the career of their dreams. He has enjoyed building relationships with many people all over the world. In 2013, he began the transition to retirement due to medical reasons, but still loves hearing about his long-time clients and candidates, while still helping PAs and NPs in any way he can.
Aaron Luebke & Karen Luebke M.S.P.A.S., PA-C, Owners
Karen has been a certified and licensed PA since 2002, having chosen medicine as a career path out of love for the amazing human body and her compassion for serving and caring for people. Working together with her dad Bill, she has been a part of PA World and NP World since their inception. After graduating from Arcadia University, Karen spent 10 years in clinical practice in Orthopedic Surgery. She has enjoyed teaching and mentoring pre-PA students and PA students, all while exciting people about the valuable work they do providing health care services.
In 2014, she married the love of her life, Aaron, who desired to keep Bill’s dream of PA & NP World alive. Having owned his own home building and remodeling business since 2000, Aaron developed a love of working with people and helping make their dreams a reality. In PA & NP World, Aaron saw a great opportunity to use his love of people to continue helping PAs and NPs find jobs, helping recruiters and clinics fill positions, and keeping the personal touch within the websites that Bill had cultivated. Karen and Aaron hold true to the mission on which the site was founded and continue to focus on helping PA and NP professionals find jobs. Together, Aaron and Karen own PA & NP World and are excited about the future.
“Hey Sunshine! Welcome to the food chain!” Through the years Bill formed close relationships with all of his clients. Although Bill no longer works on the site, many of his “Bill-isms” and the quirky sense of humor that his clients came to know and love still live on through the site!
“Thanks for your payment. We’re looking forward to the cruise!” – bill
