Dr. Christa Aubrey, Surgeon
Life after King's
I came to King's to play volleyball, but I truly found faith and God in class - particularly in one of Dr. Hank Bestman's Biology classes. I found myself in a community that encouraged me toward my passions - one being a passion for medicine.
"At King’s I learned how to have a big view of God...So much of what I do in my day to day life I owe to the principles King’s has fostered in me."
After I graduated from King's, I pursed a Doctor of Medicine at the University of Alberta. I continued pursuing further education and research and received a Masters of Science in Public Health while starting my family. I found a passion for treating women specifically in the global south and immigrant women in Canada. Due to this, I am pursuing further specialization in obstetrics and gynecology as a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada.
At King's I learned how to have a big view of God. I caught the vision of The King's University, not only in the courses I took, but also in my work with the Micah Centre and other student life and athletics related activities. So much of what I do in my day to day life I owe to the principles King's has fostered in me.
