Kristen is an ABC-certified orthotist for Hanger Clinic in Bellevue, Washington.
As a clinician with over 10 years of experience, Kristen specializes in the care of pediatric patients requiring cranial remolding orthotic treatment. She loves meeting her infant patients and their families and supporting them throughout treatment. She is passionate about taking the time to fully understand each parent’s goals and concerns. She takes the time to answer all questions while assisting in making treatment recommendations to fit each unique infant and their family. She helps guide families through the treatment process and the emotions involved at each step along the way. Kristen’s eldest son was treated with a cranial remolding orthosis, putting her in a unique position to understand the parent’s experience in the office as well as at home.
Outside of work, Kristen enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons exploring everything the pacific northwest has to offer.
