She started her nursing career in the Navy as a neonatal ICU and Labor and Delivery nurse, then received her Master’s degree at Seattle University. She started her family practice career with Medalia/ Providence Medical Group in 1998, and then became a partner/owner of the clinic when it changed to Issaquah Medical Group in 2002. She lives and works in her community, along with 2 kids, 2 dogs and 4 chickens.
Village Family Clinic & Wellness Center was established by Kristina in January of 2009, when she and 800 of her most loyal patients believed in her idea that a solo practice would minimize the interference between patient and provider, and lead to higher quality care. It was amazingly successful until the demands of primary care vs. insurance companies made it an impossible feat to provide excellent health care and pay the bills. She is now specializing in mental health and her practice, Village Family Clinic & Wellness Center.
