Christina Romacker

Birth Month: September

What’s your FAVORITE part of being a Nurse:  I love being there to support people in their lowest and highest times.  I have had the privilege to care for babies in their very first hours of life and then also hold the hand and be there for someone when they have taken their last breath.  It’s definitely not easy, but very fulfilling.

My Favorite Soda: Yuck- I’m a water girl 😊

Do you have any Pets? 2 dogs Chief (golden retriever) and Chloe (bichon poodle)

A little about my Family:  I have the cutest boys!  Riley is 11 years old going on 45.  He is very sweet, responsible and he dreams big!  I love that about him.  Dustin is my spunky 8 year old.  He never stops moving from the moment his feet hit the floor.  He loves soccer and he works hard in everything he does.  I’ve been married to my husband, Scott for almost 13 years, he’s pretty cute too!  I’ve lucky enough to have an amazing extended family as well.  I am extremely close with my parents, sisters, cousins and friends.  I’m very blessed

My Favorite Color: Blue

What’s the BEST memory that you have from working in the field of reproductive medicine?  My favorite part of the year is when the Christmas cards come rolling in.  It’s pretty cool seeing the babies, families, happiness and knowing you were just a very small part of that happy ending.  Having troubles myself I try very hard to be positive, supportive and encouraging to my patients.  I’m definitely not perfect, but I try to be who I needed when I went through it.  This journey is hard and I hope I can make it just a little easier.  The absolute best part is getting the honor to make that phone call telling them they are pregnant.  I still cry every single time, I am better about saving it til I get off the phone now 😊

My Favorite Season:  Fall

When I was little, I wanted to be a: Teacher
