Christina Treller has felt, since she was a child, a heartfelt compassion and empathy for the elderly. After working for over a decade as a Registered Nurse in critical care, and pre-operative and post-operative care, she decided to pursue her Nurse Practitioner’s degree specializing in geriatrics. She believes she was called to this profession and desires to care for the geriatric community with genuine, meaningful, patient-centered compassion. Christina believes caring for this population should be holistic and that it is more than simply chronic disease management. She desires to care not just for their physical condition but their spiritual and psychological state as well, insofar as it is possible in each case.
