Katherine Christian, Commissioner

Katherine Christian was appointed to the Board of Commissioners in April of 2018. Christian is a Registered Nurse with over 40 years of clinical experience, and currently serves as the Director of Health Education Programs at Big Bend Community College.

Born and raised in Southern California, Christian earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southern California in 1975, prior to beginning her nursing education.  In addition, she has earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of the State of New York in 1988; and a Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix in 2005. Her nursing career has provided a broad base of experience, including general acute care and ICU. She has also worked in home health, and served as office manager for a family practice, in addition to nursing education. 

She and her family moved to the Moses Lake in the early 1990s, and they have remained committed to volunteering and giving back to the area they call home. This is Christian’s second time serving on the Hospital’s Board of Commissioners, having previously held a seat from 2003-2013. Most recently, she has served the District’s Safety & Quality Committee for the last 4 years.
