Kristen is a certified physician assistant with a Master of Physician Assistant Studies and Medical Science degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Prior, Kristen earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from University of Central Florida in Orlando.  During her advanced schooling, Kristen worked in a variety of clinical settings and gained extensive hands-on experience through various rotations.

She joins Orthopaedic Specialists of Central Florida after completing extensive clinical rotations—from plastic surgery to pediatrics and otolaryngology to orthopaedic surgery.  Emergency medical training, physician assistant shadowing, and a medical mission trip and clinical skills training course have adequately prepared Kristen to assist Dr. Brian Leung.

With an extensive medical training background, Kristen is equipped to assist the orthopaedic surgeons, as well as patients who are seeking solutions to their various sports injuries, tears or sprains; broken bones or fractures, joint problems or total reconstruction needs. Kristen is equally skilled at taking complete patient history as she is performing a thorough physical exam and orthopaedic health screenings, as well as collaborating with doctors, physical therapists and other medical professionals to create and execute the best treatment plan to achieve optimal results.

Kristen will utilize her advanced training and continue to provide access to the latest research and technology available—offering leading-edge diagnostics, treatments and therapies under the tutelage of all the surgeons at Orthopaedic Specialists of Central Florida—ensuring that patients have their specific needs and concerns addressed, accompanied by a personalized treatment plan.
