Christina Cartin

MS, BSN, CRNA, CCH

Membership Secretary

Tyler, Texas  

Christina Cartin (2).jpg

Christina is a native Texan who has been in the nursing profession for over twenty years.  She began her nursing career as a Registered Nurse and decided quickly to pursue a master's degree.  She attended Northeastern University and received a Master of Science and began work as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).  Ten years working as a CRNA flew by and she began to search for new career paths.  During this time, she worked in non-profit and enjoyed the experience as the director of a pregnancy center, ran conferences and assisted the dean of a local high school, all while maintaining her CRNA license working per diem. These opportunities allowed for much personal and professional growth. About four years ago she learned about homoeopathy.  Healing through homeopathy really made sense and she began school to train to be a classical homeopath. Searching for a community with like-minded nurses who wanted to help people heal from the inside out, she found the HNA.  Each month she enjoys the educational opportunities and has even benefited from the generosity of the members when she received a scholarship. In 2022, Christina finished her studies at the School of Health in England, passed her Boards through the Council of Homeopathic Certification and decided to give back to the organization who is been so helpful to her. She is excited to work as the Membership Secretary for the HNA and encourage new members to discover what she has in an accomplished group of homeopathic nurses.
