A nurse at the Arapahoe Clinic, Cristina got the itch to go into health care while working at the Wilderness Medical Institute at NOLS. Originally from Virginia, Cristina now keeps busy chasing her 2 year old son Coyote as he plays with every toy truck he can find. Her love of dancing got her to convince husband Jim to brave the floor for the competition.
Cristina’s husband Jim is a BLM range technician and wildlands firefighter. Climbing brought him here, and throwing a rope around Cristina’s neck to get married has kept him happily in town. Laughing, he says, “We had a bet about me keeping my closet clean. I purposefully didn’t do and gave her a ring instead!” Let’s hope he can give her a trophy next.
