Christine Lalime is a Florida native born and raised in Hollywood, Florida. In 2011 she relocated to Gainesville to continue her education at the University of Florida where she earned both graduate and undergraduate degrees in Physician Assistant Studies and Biology, respectively. During PA school, Christine went on a week-long mission trip which provided medical care to the underserved population of the Yucatan Peninsula. She also was the first recipient of the Jodi Jones Knauf Scholarship, which supports medical and physician assistant students at the UF College of Medicine. During her clinical year, Christine completed Cardiology specific rotations at UF Health in Jacksonville.
Prior to PA school, Christine worked as a medical assistant at an interventional Cardiology office in Gainesville, and was also the lead clinical coordinator in the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) clinic. She is board certified by the NCCPA and is affiliated with AAPA and FAPA.
In her spare time, Christine loves to cook and travel. Prior to PA school, she went on a 6 week tour of Europe and is always looking forward to her next adventure. She is also an avid gator fan, so you’ll likely find her cheering on the Florida Gators every weekend during the fall.
