I’m Cristina, an introvert who has dedicated many years of my life to school in order to be of service to people in need. I spend my weekdays in the clinical health environment, engaging in conversations with my patients to try and identify barriers standing in the way of their health goals. Driven by a concern for others and continually inspired by words and visuals, these are the tools that I often use in my job to motivate my patients towards better health. Outside of work, the same tools have allowed me to express myself creatively. As a recent newcomer to the Instagram platform, the stories and photographs on helloquietspaces are inspired by art, design, and the communities that I’ve been lucky enough to encounter during my travels.
