Kristina is fascinated by the human nervous system and its ability to adapt and change. Her goals include become a skilled "neuroplastician" (a term coined by Norman Doidge, author of The Brain that Changes Itself). Her exceptional teaching skills have been recognized by her students and co-workers. She is very interested in continuing and expanding opportunities to be involved in Physiotherapy student education and in exploring international approaches to the treatment of patients with neurological disorders. On a personal note, she loves office supplies!
