About

Christine launched her healthcare career in 2015 when she began work as an EMT. Her love of healthcare and desire to provide care at a higher level led her to Des Moines University where she earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies.

Christine grew up in Des Moines and lived in the Twin Cities before moving to Knoxville with her family 16 years ago. Although she was raised in the city, she enjoys all aspects of living in a rural community and understands the high importance of building relationships. As a provider, she brings that same energy to her career and takes pride in getting to know her patients and working with them to create a health care plan that aligns with their goals.

Christine and her husband, Will, live in Knoxville with their three children. In her free time she enjoys swinging on her front porch with a cup of coffee, attending her kids’ sporting events, landscaping, paddleboarding, traveling to visit friends, and long walks with her dog, Homer.
