With aspirations of becoming a doctor, Christina studied forensic science at Baylor University. She decided that wasn’t the path for her—and instead looked to a master’s in health administration instead. Christina found herself at Seattle Children’s Hospital after graduation. Inspired by the hospital’s nursing staff, she decided to go back to school to earn her nursing degree.
As Nursing Professional Development Specialist of Seattle Children's Nursing Residency Program, Christina spends her days doing research into other hospital nursing residency programs to see how the hospital can best develop its own. In addition, Christina organizes classes and simulations for new nurses so that they're as prepared as possible to treat patients.
“I love our mission and our vision and what we do every day. I feel like everybody comes here because they really care about children and they want to do whatever they can to best help them.”
“At Seattle Children’s Hospital, you’re always learning something new. There are so many opportunities to do something outside of your job to help support the hospital as well—so you’re always expanding yourself and growing.”
