Karin Colunga, C.P.N.P.
Karin Colunga has 16+ total years experience as a Registered Nurse/Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Karin knew early on that she wanted to work with kids because of their need, their innocence and the ability to interact with their families. She has a passion for children’s health and a love for educating while promoting healing. Karin brings her love of health and family from her own; she has 2 young boys, 2 Golden Retrievers and oh yeah a husband.
Karin is a Loma Linda University graduate. She completed both her Bachelors and Masters Degrees at LLU; her mother and father are also LLU graduates. Healthy living living is something she was raised with and she naturally followed in her parents footsteps.
Karin’s philosophy of care comes first from her experience as a Registered Nurse and second from her continuing desire to educate. She is focused in her approach, thorough in her assessments, and always interested in the patient as a whole. You will always find Karin promoting education and safety. She knows that kids love to ride bikes and scooters and consistently brings an awareness to wearing helmets; she is famous for always saying to patients and all the kids in her neighborhood….”Wear your helmet!”.
When not at Mission Pediatrics you will find her spending time with her family riding bikes, going on picnics, and walking her dogs. She also finds shopping to be her own personal therapy.
