About the Instructor

Hello, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kristina. I have been working in healthcare since September of 1995 when I received my CNA license in Missouri. I then receive my certified medical technician and insulin certification in Missouri. After a few years I moved to Denver in 1999. I worked in nursing homes, assisted living, group homes, and realized I wanted more. I went to Concorde Career College and received my diploma in medical assisting and found my calling in dialysis. Through DaVita, I received my nursing license in October of 2011 and my Bachelors in Nursing in 2015.  Starting Nurse Practioner School in February 2018.  

I am married and have two children ages 11 and 15. I enjoy doing obstacle mud runs, volleyball, bowling, riding my motorcycle, hiking, snowshoeing, and scuba diving. I am always up for a new experience or adventure. I just wanted you to know me a little and look forward to teaching you in my next class. I enjoy learning and helping others learn as well. School was never easy for me; it was always a struggle. I want to teach, help people learn, and give them the power of knowledge.
