Christina Lackland, FNP
I started my journey with Balfour Dermatology when I had the opportunity to complete my Dermatology rotations here while attending PA school. I discovered during this time my fascination with what Dermatology and Aesthetics have to offer. I enjoy being able to work in both Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology and to be given the opportunity to help my patients correct small imperfections that bother them. We all know that beauty is skin deep, but it never hurts to reflect that from the outside.
I was born and raised locally and graduated from Deer Valley High School. I worked for Costco while attending college and nursing school which I completed in Arizona with my BSN.
Eager and ready to work I returned to California for my first Nursing job at San Joaquin General Hospital. A year following that I had the opportunity to work in the Surgical Care unit at Sutter Delta Medical Center here in Antioch. While working nights, I continued to pursue my education at Samuel Merritt University towards my Master’s Degree as a Nurse Practitioner.
Although I did my clinical training in a variety of specialties including obstetrics, family practice and Urgent Care, I quickly came to find my passion for Dermatology. I had the opportunity to join a team with extensive knowledge and experience that strives to always exceed and to give our patients the best care. Whether that be with the latest injectable and laser procedure that is going to help refresh and soften the signs of aging, or a clinical diagnosis and treatment of a potentially life-threatening skin cancer.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling, snowboarding and supporting my local Bay Area sports teams! My passion is to spend quality time with my family and my best friend, who also happens to be my little sister.
