Christina Jepperson, ARNP

I grew up in Spokane, Wash. and still love the east side. Seasons with hot, dry pine forest smells in the summer and cold snowy winters are the best. I attended the University of Washington, Seattle Pacific University, and Gonzaga University. I worked in surgical ICU, labor and delivery, and NICU (where I was known as the baby whisperer). I also worked in the cardiothoracic intensive care and transplant department at the University of Washington before becoming a nurse practitioner.

I believe that listening to a patient is sometimes the best exam there is. The complexity of diagnosis often lies not in an illness but in the challenge of truly hearing what people are saying. I value my patients and our relationships and work to heal the whole person.

I am passionate about people, cultures, and travel. I fill my soul volunteering around the world and traveling. My husband takes care of the farm when I am gone (including cows, chickens, sheep, and goats). My son and daughter are also getting the travel bug. We recently had two foreign exchange students (one from Spain and one from Brazil), and I now consider them a part of my family!
