Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Kristin was born and raised in Michigan. She has lived in Chicago and numerous areas within the Detroit area, most recently a resident of Ann Arbor before moving to Portland. She graduated from the CRNA program at Rush University Medical Center and completed her doctorate and MBA at Michigan. Before accepting her position at OHSU she was employed as a CRNA at the University of Michigan Hospital and held an adjunct faculty position at Michigan's school of nursing. Her daughter is 12 years old, attending 7th grade in the fall and her husband is an editor for the magazine, Car and Driver. She also brings with her a yellow Labrador. She is fond of running, cooking, gardening, and is known to partake in a wine tasting….or two. Feels fortunate to be a part of OHSU anesthesia team.
