Christian returns to Cayuga Orthopedics after several years away, when she worked in emergency medicine and dermatology. Her previous time with Cayuga Orthopedics was spent working with the many surgeons of the practice, in both clinical and surgical support capacities. Her professional interests are total joint replacements, sports medicine and trauma, but she finds all aspects of orthopedic care engaging. Christian is originally from Southern Pines, North Carolina. She worked as a U.S. Navy air traffic controller for seven years, and later became a firefighter for the City of Charlottesville, VA. In 2003, she moved to Ithaca to attend Cornell University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science, and then earned a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at LeMoyne College in 2010.
