Chrissy grew up right outside of NYC, in a New Jersey suburb. She received her bachelor's degree, with honors, in Psychology in 2012 from Providence College, and then worked in pediatric oncology hospital administration at Dana-Farber in Boston, MA. In 2016, Chrissy decided to pursue nursing by receiving her Master's degree, with honors, from Columbia University. She then started her nursing career as an RN in the Pediatric ICU at Newark Beth Israel Hospital in NJ. Following her passion for primary care, she switched to working in a lively pediatric office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan while pursuing her NP degree.
In May 2021, Chrissy graduated with honors from Stony Brook University as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, after extensive clinical experience from several Manhattan practices and the Mt. Sinai Pediatric ER. She is board certified as a primary care PNP, and an active member of the NYC chapter of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). Chrissy also enjoys cooking, traveling, and helping out with her three busy nephews (3 boys all under age 3)!
