About Kristina

Kristina began her medical career in 2007 after graduating from Kent State University with her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Originally from Croatia, she moved to the states at a young age and she remains very passionate for traveling the world. To incorporate her love for traveling into her love for helping others, she became a Travel Registered Nurse in 2010. She loves to talk about her journeys and finds it often further connects her to her patients. While continuing her travels, Kristina also further pursued her education at Walden University, becoming an AANP board certified family Nurse Practitioner.
Most recently, Kristina completed a dermatology internship here at Apex Dermatology, learning from the finest dermatological providers in Northeast Ohio. She sees patients for all skin conditions including adult and pediatric dermatology.
