Krissy says, “The transition from AICS to SEARHC has been smooth and seems like a great fit! It has been nice to be able to broaden resources and make connections with other professionals outside of Wrangell.”
Krissy has a broad area of medical interests, but if she had to pick one, it would be trauma therapy, being able to help people heal and move forward in life. When not in clinic she is a huge fan of her family and anything that has to do with family, loves the outdoors, and enjoys hunting.
