Kristin’s passion for wholistic care in serving the medically underserved developed early in her teenage years. During high school, in Kenya, she was involved in maternal-child education programs. While completing her undergraduate she took summer trips to Kenya to participate in physical rehabilitation activities and provide medical care at orphanages. In 1995 Kristin graduated from Physician Assistant School and joined the National Health Service Corp where she worked in the Bronx with substance abuse patients in methadone maintenance programs. Kristin then went on to complete a 2-year Critical Care residency program in 2000, and continued working in Critical Care clinical medicine. She continued to pursue higher education as she completed her Masters in Health Care management in addition to completing a certificate program in clinical research. For the next several years she served as a Clinical Research Manager with the Montefiore Critical Care department managing both staff and patients enrolled in trials before she returned to clinical medicine in 2005. In 2007 Kristin returned to clinical research as an independent where she led, developed, reviewed and participated in many projects including FDA audits and policy and procedure writing for a start-up pharmaceutical company. In 2011, Kristin returned to clinical medicine on a part time basis where she continued until this spring.
 
Kristin’s relationship with New Life Community Health Center first began in 2005 when she began volunteering with the center. She felt right at home as the team of volunteers at NLCHC embodies selfless dedication to ensure wholistic care. Some of Kristin’s many roles, over the years with the clinic has included, but is not limited to, participation in health fairs, patient care, organizing/ credentialing volunteers, and empowering students to become involved in the medical services the clinic provides to the Queens community as well as in the larger world of medical missions. In doing this Kristin has spoken at medical school gatherings, trained medical students to assist at the health center, and instilled a vision for service to the medically underserved in numerous students. Through the community development corporation she has become acquainted with many community level leadership-training programs involving students. In 2013, Kristin was appointed the Medical Administrator of New Life Community Health Center and she continues to serve in that role today.
