Biography

Prior to joining Providence Northeast Rehabilitation Clinic in 2013, Christina practiced for ten years in the acute care setting in a Level 1 trauma center and teaching hospital, followed by eight years in two different inpatient rehabilitation facilities. During this time, Christina learned a great deal from her therapy colleagues, other healthcare providers and especially the patients with whom she worked. Her interests include helping people figure out how to meet their mobility-related goals, even if those goals seem a little out of reach initially. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (including the Academy of Neurologic Practice Section), the Oregon PT Association, and the National Stroke Association.
