Hello! My name is Kalina, and I started with HEP in April 2022. I am so excited to be part of the HEP team and love the work that we do. I am very passionate about health equity and harm reduction. I primarily work with patients to provide hepatitis education, testing, vaccination, and help direct any other needs they may have. I first studied Public Health at the University of Washington before pursuing nursing at Seattle Central College. I was born and raised in the greater Seattle area and love living in the PNW. Outside of HEP, you’ll find me playing D&D, eating great food with friends, or relaxing at home with my cats.
