Christina Cuzzo has been a registered nurse since 2013, and more recently obtained her master’s degree and became a board-certified Nurse Practitioner.
Christina began her nursing career in the hospital in a cardiac intensive care unit and was there for eight years. It was there that she realized how deeply unhealthy lifestyles have become a mainstay of American society.
After a short while working in this environment, Christina began a health journey of her own including nutritious eating, regular gym going, and skin care. In the hospital, she witnessed firsthand what happens when a person neglects his or her body. With that in the forefront of her mind, she found Replenish Health & Wellness, a place that treats people holistically, from the inside out, and she is thrilled to be a member of this family that is taking a different approach to healing, than what is seen inside of a hospital.
