A little bit about Dr. Clark, in her words…
“I am the first born of 2, with a brother who is 12 months and 10 days younger than me. We grew up Midwestern-style, in Flint, Michigan, where my family still lives. I had a very sweet childhood and hold onto very fond memories of that time. I remember making mud pies on my grandmother’s porch, swimming at the public pool each summer, visiting Lake Michigan, and snowmobiling in the winters. I think my strong sense of family came from those days.
I had my precocious moments, though. I was a picky eater, and I remember my mom would make me my own salad with just carrots, lettuce, and no dressing. We would always have to sit and wait at McDonald’s for my special orders. The pickiness has not changed (I still hate mayonnaise), but I have gotten more adventurous in many ways.
I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. My first business venture was called ‘Christa’s Craft Shop.’ I’d sew little pillows and paint rocks and then try to sell them to my family. When that business folded, I started a ‘Cool Club’ in third grade, inspired by the movie Grease. Of course, I was the president. I even collected membership dues. It was all very organized. I’d like to think I bring some of that same spirit to my practice today.”
