Christen Wahl, APRN

“I have wanted to work in healthcare since I was a child and saw the amazing difference that my mother, a Registered Nurse, was able to make in the lives of others. I’m very passionate about providing patients with the tools, resources, and knowledge they need to live a healthier life, and for them to leave the office feeling like they have a trusted friend in me as their healthcare provider. I have spent 12 years in post-secondary education and plan to never stop learning so that I can always provide my patients with the most up to date, evidence-based care.”
