Christina is a registrar at HSHS Holy Family Health Center - managed by HSHS Medical Group in Greenville, Illinois.
 
The Colleague of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. “Christina is a perfect example of our mission,” her nominator said. “She embodies Christ’s love for all people every single day and makes a point to make a difference in someone’s life each and every day. One day a package was accidentally delivered to the office. It happened to be a patient of ours that lived nearby. Christina called the patient to let her know a package was delivered to the office. The elderly woman could not leave her husband to pick up the package, so Christina offered to deliver the package to the patient after work. The patient was very appreciative and wanted to thank Christina for always going above and beyond.”
 
“My favorite part of the job is getting to know and learn about the patients,” Christina said. “It makes me happy to know that I can help the community that I have grown up in and still currently live in. When I can get an answer for a patient and they are so grateful it reminds me that God has put me in this job for a reason; I truly want to make people’s not only lives but days better. My number one rule I live by is that no matter what is going on in my personal life I want to make at least one person’s day every day. It may be by something as small as a smile, have a great day or taking a meal to someone that needs it. You never know what someone else is going through in life.”
 
Christina’s favorite after-work activities include spending time with her family and any opportunity she gets to snuggle up with a book for a while.
