Kristin’s journey into healthcare began twenty-seven years ago when she was a volunteer EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) in both Lancaster and Milford, NH. Later, inspired by both her mother and sister who are RN’s, Kristin returned to college to begin her own nursing career. In 2000, Kristin graduated with high honors from St Joseph School of Nursing in Nashua, NH as an LPN and later completed her graduate RN studies at Rivier University in Nashua.
Initially, Kristin worked in a Long- term Care Rehabilitation setting, starting as a float nurse and was later promoted to the position of Supervisor and Staff Development Coordinator. Kristin went onto become specialized as a CWCA (Certified Wound Care Associate) with the American Board of Wound Management.
In 2011, Kristin accepted a position with the Elliot Healthcare system and over the next eight years worked as an RN homecare case manager with the VNA (Visiting Nurses Association) of Manchester and Southern NH. Kristin wanted to offer a more holistic form of nursing care that would help meet the unique and sometimes complex needs of her patients. Homecare was the perfect next step in that path.
Kristin became increasingly fascinated with Eastern Medicine after years of working with veterans, patients and families from all walks of life with various emotional and spiritual needs. In short, she felt she could do better by her patients if she had more options of holistic care to offer them. In 2015, she began studying Reiki under the guidance of Karen Cerato, Reiki Master Teacher at the NH Health & Wellness Center, eventually moving her way up the ranks to becoming a Certified Reiki Master. Kristin went on to study Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)) “Tapping” under the guidance of Jade Barbee and is now certified in EFT and a member of EFT International. In addition, Kristin is an Herbal Apprentice with the Boston School of Herbal studies and has found a new passion learning about the healing properties of plants, herbs, and mushrooms.
