A call to RetuRN
There is a holistic beauty that lies within the nursing profession and its history. By returning to the roots within the nursing field and practicing a more integrated approach to self-care and the care of the people we serve, burnout can simmer, professional relationships can strengthen, and health can elevate to the fullest wellbeing potential.
Are you ready to answer the call to RetuRN?
Through improved communication and advocacy across all levels, I work with organizations to bridge the gap between nurses and leadership, boost morale within the nursing departments, and improve the overall job satisfaction.
I partner with nurses, individually or within groups, to counsel through career choices, discover fluidity between work and life, and cultivate transformation through resilience.

“A Peek Into a Nurse’s Soul”
Op-Ed Feature | Utica Observer-Dispatch
“The beauty of nursing is that with every generation we care for, we have the largest impact on elevating this world to its highest well-being potential. So, when we cry out for help, listen. The world depends on us, and we want to be there in the most effective ways we can.“
Prior to working with Christina, I felt little joy in work. I lacked motivation to do much outside of work. I was just content. Christina helped me learn a practice of gratitude which, in all honesty, felt very weird in the beginning, but over time I became a happier person more frequently. Christina was always upbeat but never painted a picture that her life was perfect. She made me feel that we are all human and no one is better off than the next, despite appearances.
Because I started to become more positive, eventually I started to discuss my desire to start running again. So I made that a goal and it turned out well. Christina explained the mind/body/soul connection to me and it didn’t make sense until I realized that by working on my happiness, it made me want to make healthier decisions with my physical acitivy. I became more motivated.
I would recommend Christina’s coaching for someone who wants to make changes but may lack 100% motivation. I found Christina to be very motivating and made me feel like, “well why can’t I do it? She’s right”. I would also recommend Christina to someone who could utilize a holistic approach to their care instead of a band-aid approach that is generally offered.
Prior to working with Christina, I would describe my life as hectic. During the first coaching session I could feel the stress pouring out of me. the session progressed I felt more in control of how to tackle the stressors in my life. The strategies discussed have greatly improved my ability to manage what is happening around me and within me. I truly appreciate this time I had. Overall this was an extremely positive experience, I enjoyed positive feedback as well as concrete constructive ideas/methods of achieving well being. Also, coaching provided motivation to complete goals I have set fourth for myself and my family. I would recommend this type of coaching to all as it builds confidence and helps one stay focused while promoting accountability.
Prior to working with Christina, I was in a stressful place in life.I had recently lost my dad and was starting training for a new type of career. I had been the caretaker for both of my parents and had been busy raising my own family. Christina offered me inspiration to set goals and take action steps that inspired and energized me.
She provided a safe and judgement free space to talk, share my emotions and to celebrate my accomplishments. She helped me move forward in health and well-being in all aspects of my life. I am stronger and have clarity about the things I need to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I recommend anyone that is seeking to move towards a change in lifestyle to seek out Christina and experience for yourself all that she has to offer.
