Personal Information:

After 10 years as a nurse in a busy urban Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, I found myself drawn to the more holistic realm of primary care. Now as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner I find joy and satisfaction in partnering with families across the spectrum of infancy, childhood and adolescence. I am an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation consultant and have a deep interest in attachment parenting. I also enjoy Italian cooking, travel, yoga, and the ballet. I am married with one daughter.

Christina is usually at our Orenco location on Mondays.
