Cris trained at Austin in general surgery, and has worked at Austin and Repatriation Hospital, Bendigo Health and the Northern Hospital, gaining a broad experience of general surgery.

During her training, she completed a PhD in Surgery at the University of Melbourne.

She was registered as a general surgeon in 2014. She completed a Fellowship year at the Northern Hospital in 2014, focusing on Emergency General Surgery and Endocrine Surgery.

In 2015 and 2016, Cris moved to Nepal with her family to work as a volunteer general surgeon in a rural hospital, United Mission to Nepal Tansen Hospital. During this time she managed complex and straightforward general surgical problems, urological and gynaecological surgery. While there she worked particularly to support the education of young Nepali surgeons and GP surgeons.

Cris still has close ties to her Nepali colleagues and continues to support the hospital. In 2017, Cris and her family returned to Australia and settled in Bendigo.

She has a broad general surgical practice and is happy to deal with both simple and complex surgical conditions.
