When Dr. Christine Wilson inherited her Albuquerque practice, she inherited a legacy. This practice has a long history of Alternative and Complementary medicine for animals in NM and abroad. The practice was started in 1997 by Dr. Mona Boudreaux who has since become one of the major educators in the field of Veterinary Chinese Herbology. The next Veterinarian to inhabit the space was Dr. Ricki Brozman. She continues to enjoy a primarily equine alternative and complementary practice just outside of Kansas City. Dr. Wilson was lucky enough to inherit the legacy of these great veterinarians in March of 2004. There is currently one employee (Michelle Trumfio) who keeps the affairs at the front desk in order. This practice owes its very existence to the continued support and guidance of Dr. Gary Allen (DOM) our friendly nextdoor neighbor.

Dr. Wilson has always walked on the other side of the line of convention therefore alternative medicine was a natural choice. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, afforded an extremely interesting education from the start, which began with an education in a special bilingual (French-English) grammar school, LaGuardia High School of Music and Art (1985) and The Fashion Institute of Technology (1987). The road to Veterinary School started out at Hunter College in NY. Trying to find some peace from a crazy NY life, she decided to follow her mother to NM for a vacation. This vacation turned into a lifetime move to NM. In NM, activities included volunteering at the Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge her first year and attending the University of New Mexico and finishing in 1995 (Magna Cum Laude) with a double major in Biology and Chemistry. Formal Veterinary education started with graduating from Tufts Veterinary School in MA (Class of 1999). In an environment of encouragement and access to diverse ideas in Veterinary medicine at Tufts an interest in complementary and alternative therapies began. She has been a licensed Veterinarian in NM since 2000 and enjoyed small animal and exotic general (allopathic medicine) practice for 4 years. This led into a decision to continue a passion for alternative medicine by taking the International Veterinary Acupuncture certification course starting in 2002, an extensive private study of Chinese herbs with a leading herbal master in 2004, a Veterinary Chiropractic course at Healing Oasis Wellness Center in January of 2005. The most recent educational course is Classical Homeopathy with Dr. Richard Pitcairn completed in June 2009. The learning process contuinies for Dr. Wilson to expand her knowledge in alternative therapies at the Chi Institute along with yearly meetings in Acupuncture, herbs, spinal manipulation, homeopathy, and holistic medicine in general.
