Hey there, and welcome to UNC Family Medicine! My name is Christina, and I grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. I am proud to be a “UNC Lifer” as I went to college, medical school, and now am in residency at UNC (Go Heels!). During college, I had the opportunity to be part of public health projects in Mexico, Malawi, and at Baylor’s Office of Health Equity. These experiences, among others, sparked my interest in medicine. My first exposure to family medicine was between my first and second years at Prospect Hill Community Health Center. It was a joy to care for a range of ages, whole families, and many Spanish-speaking patients. I found the type of work I would be happy doing the rest of my life. I was fortunate to return to Prospect Hill for my third year clerkship. This, in addition to experiences in a longitudinal Spanish curriculum, at UNC’s student-run clinic, and through the Honduran Health Alliance (an annual women’s health trip), solidified my desire to be a family physician. I am excited to be in a field where I will know my patients’ stories and care for them over time.
I am overjoyed to be a part of the UNC Family Medicine family! I am particularly honored to have my continuity clinic at Prospect Hill, where my love for family medicine began. I have found the faculty, residents, and staff at UNC an inspiring group of people who sincerely care for their patients and each other.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and family. I love to read, run, hike, and go to the mountains as much as possible. I am grateful to continue to call UNC home!
