Karla Ingle Financial Secretary


        I was born in Hickory, NC and have lived in the Granite Falls area all my life. I married Rodney Ingle in July 2000 and we have three children, Hunter 13, Morgan 11, and Caroline 6. Prior to starting work here at HUMC, I worked from home as a medical transcriptionist for Hickory Family Practice for the past 6 years and at Frye Hospital for 5 years prior to that. My family and I enjoying taking care of our animals and going to ballgames which keep us busy year round. My son Hunter plays for his school team and he also plays travel ball. My daughter Morgan loves to read, loves animals and helps me with my Scentsy and Origami Owl business. My youngest daughter Caroline plays every sport that she can and keeps us very busy. I feel it is a blessing to be the secretary here at HUMC and I look forward to the future with you!
