About Me

Christina went into the field of neurosurgery after studying neurobiology in college. Before joining The Oregon Clinic, Christina worked in an academic hospital in New York City for three years where she practiced evidence-based medicine in neurosurgery.

Outside of work, Christina enjoys hiking, rock climbing, camping, and traveling to see friends and family. She loves living in Portland because of the food and living close to the mountains and the coast.
