| Christine Herb lives in Palm Springs, CA with her "awesome" Italian husband of 18 years and daughter who is 12 years old. She has 2 stepsons and 4 grand children that also keep her busy. Christine is pleased to be recognized by her peers for dedication and hard work but doing what she loves to do. She owns and runs her own private practice called Beacon Nurse Consultants. She is amazed at how the explosion of new technology to wound care products has impacted the ET profession in the past 5 years. Over the next 5 years, Christine wants to maintain the success of her private practice while balancing time for her husband, daughter and God. She loves to study Gods word, pray, garden, improve her homestead, bike ride and go to movies.
