Christina grew up on the Montana hi-line. Living in underserved areas and watching her father practice medicine grew her desire to help people through healthcare. She finished her pre-med degree at MSU and later obtained her Master of Physician Assistant degree at Wichita State University in Kansas. She spent her first three years practicing in central Kansas in rural family practice, ER, and hospital settings. Montana called her home and she returned to Billings where she worked as a hospitalist PA for 3.5 years. After meeting her husband and stepson who live in Bozeman, she was fortunate to find a position with CHP. She is excited to get back into a clinic and establish longer-term patient relationships that allow her to get to know her patients and help them find the root of their illness/condition rather than masking the symptoms. She's found these relationships often lead patients to a deeper understanding of themselves and help them to meet their health and lifestyle goals. When not working, Christina enjoys being with family & friends, swimming, hiking, gardening, singing, and working on her family's ranch.
