Staff Spotlight: Kristina Patterson, RN

We’re excited to welcome our new nurse, Kristina Patterson, to the Ryan House Care Team!

Learn more about her in this month’s Staff Spotlight where you’ll see that she has some pretty unique skills and an awesome sense of humor too!

What is one unique thing people don’t know about you – like a hobby, a former profession, a place you’ve visited? 

I can rip a gas nozzle and hose out of the pump and not blow anyone up.

If you had a superpower, what would it be? 

Transporting myself somewhere with a blink and a nod.

What did you want to be when you were younger? 

A forest ranger.

What is your favorite kind of music and/or band? 


If you could have dinner with anyone, who would you choose?  

Jessica Fletcher (played by Angela Lansbury) from Murder She Wrote. I’m pretty sure we are meant to be best friends.

What is one thing you cannot live without?

Being outside

What do you consider your motto in life? 


Is there anything else you’d like to share with the Ryan House community?

I came to Ryan House Peds for the first time eight years ago through the Resource Team. I fell in love with the kids. I admired the parents and staff. I’m very happy to be calling this home.
