Christina loves working in Hillsboro because the location offers a semi-rural setting. Her family is composed of her husband and her daughter. In her free time, she loves cooking, baking, gardening with flowers, hiking and traveling. She likes to relax and unwind by spending time with her family, reading, and going to the ballet.

Christina is enamored with pediatrics because she understands that children are our future. She loves watching them grow; and sees partnering with parents as richly rewarding. She is passionate about working with infants, with her 10 years of NICU experience and board certification as a Lactation Consultant. Christina is heavily involved in bettering HPC every day, as she is a part of committees that encourage infant care and involve parents in our Parent Advisory Group to make HPC the best. To give back to her community, Christina volunteers with the Oregon Ballet Theatre, where she has even made a few production appearances.

Christina is usually at our Orenco location on Mondays.
