About Krystal M. Trinkle
Philosophy of care
I want the children and families in my care to lead a healthy life by providing them with the tools necessary to do so. As a nurse practitioner, I feel that education for families and children is the key to achieving a healthy lifestyle. I provide education on sleeping, eating, hygiene and exercise habits to prevent diseases and create a healthier lifestyle. I also provide safety education with emphasis on car seat safety. I would never recommend a treatment or provide guidance for your child and family that I wouldn't recommend for mine.
Why I entered medicine
Growing up, I was always interested in working and caring for children. During my senior year of high school, I took anatomy and physiology and found I loved the intricacies of the human body and realized I could blend the two by becoming a nurse. I knew that pediatrics was my calling and began my career in the neonatal intensive care unit, then floated among pediatric units as I decided to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I get to work with children and their families, and share in their growth.
In the community I participate in car seat check events. I am also very active in my children's activities.
We are huge fans of Disney and enjoy going to Disney World. We also enjoy traveling and experiencing new places, including different beaches. Personally, I love arts and crafts, cooking and baking. I enjoy doing arts and crafts with my children and we also love to cook and bake together. We are also active outdoors and enjoy practicing soccer, dancing, walking our dog and running.
