Cristina Christianson, Staff Veterinarian

Dr. Cristina Christianson was raised Scottsdale, Arizona and spent most of her youth on her family’s small hobby farm in the Valley of the Sun. She knew at a young age that animals would play a special role in her life and quickly accumulated a menagerie of pets, from horses and cats to chickens and lizards. After high school, she attended William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri and graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Pre-Veterinary Concentration, magna cum laude. From there, she attended the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in West Lafayette, Indiana studying mixed animal medicine. She graduated with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in May of 2018. Following graduation, Dr. Christianson moved out to Long Beach, California with her two kitties to begin her veterinary career and attain a lifetime goal of living near the ocean.

Due to her interest in the human-animal bond and the one health initiative, Dr. Christianson committed herself to shelter medicine and exotic animal medicine while in school; traveling as far as Guatemala for volunteer work helping wildlife rescued from illegal pet trafficking. She is interested in public education and plans to continue donating her time and knowledge to outreach programs while becoming acquainted to Los Angeles County. Outside of veterinary practice, Dr. Christianson enjoys gardening, spending time at her family’s farm, and jewelry making. She invests herself in giving back to the community through volunteering her time with multiple organizations, helping people and animals alike.
