Christina Ferrero truly enjoys making connections with people and helping others. That passion is what drives her in her role as a Physician Liaison with Advanced Pain Care. Her career has been focused on building relationships and educating others on tools to create a better quality of life and she truly enjoys sharing with providers the many options to help those struggling with pain. Christina graduated with a degree in Theology which encouraged critical thinking and creative ways to tell a story. She uses those skills along with her 15 years of experience in the medical field to connect with providers and the community to hear the message that pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
In her free time, she loves spending time with her three sons, and you can often hear her say that young adult kids are the best! She is active, loves yoga, live music and theater and enjoys the outdoors. She is a member of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and loves experiencing all the things Georgetown has to offer as she resides just a few miles away in north Round Rock.
