what's she all about?
Dr.Christina grew up in Raytown Missouri with a little brother, the most wonderful parents, a tendency to be a little too competitive, a drive to excel and a large desire to learn. Her love of Chiropractic blossomed when it eased her pain from migraine headaches and increased her athletic performance. She was a state swimmer and graduated in the top of her class. When she started her education at the University of Missouri she wasn't sure what type of medicine she wanted to pursue but knew she wanted to help people and better lives. Her time at Mizzou was filled with life lessons and the completion of multiple degrees. Next up was Cleveland University where she met the love of her life and discovered her passion of Chiropractic medicine. Those two came together in 2008 when Dr.Jeff and Dr.Christina opened AYH in Leawood. The rest is history filled with thousands of success stories and more laughter than anyone could have imagined.
more than you ever wanted to know!
I prefer to go by Dr.Christina. This is what my patients call me and what I'm most likely to answer to. No Dr.Carter for me... that's my father-in-law.
i love people. frankly everything about them and always want to know their story, where they come from and what makes them tick but... only one-on-one no large crowds please.
I waited until i was in my 30s to get on a plane and its been a true passion since that trip to san francisco. i want to see the world with my husband and plan on enjoying every second of it.
You will always hear me say that i follow the 80/20 rule. to me that means I have made daily fitness a priority and workout every day, make sure my cardio and my weights are on point but will never say no to a cookie, a waffle or tacos because i believe in balance.
