Kris grew up in a small Texas town.  She was heavily involved in extracurricular activities: piano, violin, dance (ballet/jazz/tap), tennis, horseback riding (english/western), taekwondo, basketball, volleyball, percussion, drumline, orchestra, band, mascot, pageants.  She had the typical Tiger Mom upbringing.


Kris went to Texas A&M for undergrad (Whoop!), UTMB medical school, an internship in Austin (Brackenridge Hospital), anesthesia residency in Boston at Massachusetts General Hospital, and completed a cardiothoracic anesthesia fellowship at UCSD.


Amidst the ups and downs of life , allow me to share with you my thoughts and journey…as an “ordinary” person who happens to be an MD.
