Kristen Davis is a certified Physician Assistant with more than a decade of experience in medicine. Her educational background includes a dual Master of Public Health and Master of Health Sciences/Physician Assistant program at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. She is a member of the AAPA, the national professional society for PAs.
Over a ten-year period as a surgical physician assistant, Kristen recognized an exponential increase in the number of patients diagnosed with diabetes. More importantly, she witnessed the far-reaching and often overlooked effects that diabetes had on an individual undergoing surgery, including delayed recovery periods, increased post-operative infections, and in many cases, postponement or cancellation of critical surgeries as a result of uncontrolled diabetes.
Kristen stepped out of the operating room to find a place where she could contribute to treating and educating people with diabetes after learning that several of her friends and family members had been diagnosed. Upon discovering Vdex, Kristen knew it was a perfect match, encompassing her desire to provide a better understanding of diabetes to patients and to offer a definitively better choice for managing their condition.
Kristen lives in Topanga Canyon with her husband and two young sons where she spends as much time as possible hiking and trail running in the Santa Monica mountains, except in the summer when the rattle snakes force her to run the hilly roads in her neighborhood.
