Chris works closely with the patients and families who have been admitted to the hospital, providing excellent continuity of care for our surgical and trauma patients. With a clinical interest in procedural pain management, Chris focuses on techniques to minimize anxiety and painful events, which are often part of the child's hospital experience. She especially enjoys assisting families navigate through their hospital stay, with the end goal of getting their child home and back to their job of being a kid.

In her free time, Chris enjoys hiking, skiing, cycling, and watching SEC football with her husband and twin boys.
