Kristin Henderson, PA-C

Triangle Region

Roanoke Rapids

Kristin Henderson, PA-C, started out as a “cornhusker” from Nebraska, but after spending several years in the Midwest experiencing her fair share of snow, she thankfully made her way to the beautiful state of North Carolina (due to her father’s job) and has never looked back. She has spent the last 20 years in Cary. Kristin is part of a set of triplets (along with a brother, Kevin, and a sister, Katie) and has another older brother, Brian. Growing up there was never a dull moment, and, surprisingly, her parents still have their sanity, too.

She is a graduate of East Carolina University where she earned her Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies and has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an English minor from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Kristin has had several different types of jobs in her past, but the ones she had prior to beginning PA school and the start of her career in orthopedics were the two that solidified her decision to get into healthcare. She was a Lead Care Manager at Sunrise Assisted Living for 4 years and a CNA/HUC on the mother/baby floor at Duke Regional Hospital for 2 years.

She is currently working with the awesome EmergeOrtho crew in Roanoke Rapids, assisting Dr. Holm and Keith Hutchins, PA-C. She is a big kid at heart who loves spending time with her family and friends and helping care for all the little ones in her life. In her spare time, she enjoys making pallet furniture, playing guitar, fishing, and doing various home improvement projects.
