Christine is the Clinical Supervisor at the Newport Beach location, specializing in pelvic health with a strong background in orthopedics that she incorporates into her practice.
Christine is a Certified Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner (PRPC). She graduated from Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science and then went on to Chapman University in Orange, CA where she received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Most recently, Christine received her Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of Southern California.
She enjoys treating pregnant patients preparing for their delivery, postpartum patients wanting to progress back to their previous activity level, and patients with sacroiliac or hip pain, tailbone pain, painful intercourse, interstitial cystitis, pelvic pain, and incontinence. She believes in tailoring treatment programs to a patient’s individual needs and meeting them where they are to promote long term recovery. She believes patient education is empowerment and enjoys working with patients to help them reach their goals.
Christine has participated in numerous community education events as a speaker and a panel member. She has been featured in Rehab Management, Physical Therapy Products, and PopSugar promoting awareness of pelvic and sexual health for both patients and practitioners. She participates as a guest lecturer in a quarterly continuing education course for LMFT’s specializing in sex therapy, educating clinicians from other disciplines on pelvic pain conditions and their overall impact on sexual health.
Originally from Oregon, Christine loves to enjoy the sandy beaches and warm sunshine that California offers. She likes to stay active with spinning and Crossfit and incorporates the principles of functional fitness into her patient’s rehabilitation plans whenever possible. Her time outside of work is spent with her husband, their daughter and their rescue dog.
Christine loves the supportive environment the Hoag Pelvic Health Program provides for everyone who walks through our doors. She feels that the holistic care our team offers contributes to the overall well-being of an individual, and not just their current diagnosis. She is thrilled to be a part of such a passionate multidisciplinary team.
