She began her Nursing career working at Mayo Clinic with excellent mentors in medical hematology and oncology, with a focus in liver and kidney transplants, while expanding her practice to the Mayo Clinic outpatient infusion Center.
Through Kristi’s clinical practice at the Mayo Clinic, she realized that she wanted to offer more to her patients and families; she wanted to assist them to become engaged in wellness and preventative care to prevent catastrophic disease states. Kristi decided to further her scope of practice and become a Family Nurse Practitioner; therefore, she could engage her patients and assist them to achieve their optimal level of health. Kristi graduated with honors from ASU in 2005 with her Master of Science, Family Nurse Practitioner, and is a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honors program.
