Kristina is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner accredited by the ANCC. She completed her undergraduate studies at Seattle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Ultrasound. Moving forward in her career, she next attended University of Hawaii for her BSN certification in 2016 as a Registered Nurse. In her further pursuit of excellence, she completed her Doctorate in Nursing with a specialty in Family Medicine. Her doctorate studies included 3 years of comprehensive didactic instruction and clinical rotations. During her clinical rotations, she chose to concentrate her interest and rotation in Dermatology. It was then she fell in love with the field of Dermatology and realized the social, physical and psychological impact it can have on one’s quality of life. Additionally, she completed her doctoral dissertation directly related to dermatology, in preventing pressure ulcers amongst homebound population, such as those suffering from diabetes, post-stroke and bedridden patients.
After her APRN training, Kristina spent 7 months in a clinical rotation with a board-certified dermatologist. She moved to New York City in December 2019 and spent 6 months at a busy Dermatology office. Then, for the best interest of her family, when the COVID-19 Pandemic hit NYC, she returned back to Hawaii.
Kristina loves Hawaii for the welcoming people, the diversity of cultures and the lifestyle. Kristina was born and raised in Guam and attended the Academy of our Lady of Guam in Hagatna for high school. She moved to Hawaii in 2005. Since then, she has become a “bonafide kamaaina.” Her hobbies include running—she has run two Honolulu marathons,—going to the beach, and enjoying her free time with her two young kids. She joined Dr. Wong Sr. as a Nurse Practitioner in July of 2020. She is undergoing further specialty training in surgical and cosmetic procedures. She looks forward to meeting and assisting our kamaainas and visitors to our “Hawaii-Nei".
