Sigma Beta Tau Honor SocietyPractice HistoryChrista began her nursing career as a labor and delivery nurse at Gwinnett Medical Center. She spent several years there honored to help women navigate one of the most pivotal events in their lives. She then took time away from the bedside to have her own little ones. Her passion for women's health drew her back to work as a nurse on the high-risk pregnancy unit at Northside Gwinnett and back to school to pursue an MSN degree. She served as a phone triage nurse for Maternal Gynerations during graduate school and is now thrilled to join the team of providers at MatGyn to help women promote and maintain health across the lifespan.InterestsI love to read, and I thoroughly enjoy exploring new things: new foods, new places, and new ideas.
