Christine is a Utah native whose love for her home state’s mountains and outdoor landscapes makes her long-distance cycling hobby especially enjoyable. She also likes to hike, quilt, cook, and tend her family’s many animals—both exotic and ordinary.
The cute things children say and do are a major perk of her profession, according to Christine. The mother of two also feels greatly rewarded by the opportunity to get to know families and watch children grow up. When families trust her enough to refer her to their friends and families, that’s the greatest compliment. Children see a kindred spirit in Christine, who freely admits to liking “silly kid things” and keeping her office full of toys.
9-month olds, 4-year olds, and 11-12-year olds are Christine’s favorite ages to work with, but she enjoys all ages. Her practice specialties are infant and child feeding, lactation, and asthma care. Although she didn’t go to the doctor much growing up and doesn’t consider herself a good patient, she takes special care to make her patients comfortable and earn their trust.
Christine speaks English and Spanish.
Christine loves frogs and has recently embraced this by restarting her frog collection. Her childhood nickname was even Kermit the Frog!
