Medical Reviewer

As a freelance writer, educator and practicing pharmacist, Christina draws from over a decade of clinical expertise to provide Addiction Group readers invaluable patient care insights. She first discovered a passion for health writing while completing a competitive internship based in UC San Francisco's community pharmacy teaching program. There, Christina developed skills tailoring complex treatment guidelines into more relatable resources for diverse patient populations.

Upon completing her Doctor of Pharmacy degree with highest honors, she served as an Assistant Clinical Professor designing continuing education curriculums for pharmacists across California. Outside teaching, Christina stays actively immersed in pharmacy practice, allowing her writing to be shaped by real patient needs and gaps in understanding medication options.

Whether authoring articles reviewing addiction treatment efficacy or speaking engagements focused on harm reduction, Christina feels profound purpose in empowering others through education. Her mission is motivating readers to take charge of their health.
