Kristy Solis grew up in Meraux, where she still resides with her family. She graduated from Our Lady of Holy Cross with a bachelor of science degree in nursing; Loyola University New Orleans with a master of science in nursing; and University of Holy Cross with a doctor of education in executive leadership. She has practiced as a registered nurse and a family nurse practitioner with a concentration in adult health. With Katrina, God led her down another path, and she discovered her passion and embarked on the path of nursing education. Since then to present day, she serves full-time as a nursing faculty member at the University of Holy Cross. Kristy’s husband serves the country in the United States Army. They have two young daughters and one young-at-heart papa. Her family is blessed to be part of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church family in St. Bernard. Kristy’s favorite things to do with her family are to pray together and to experience new adventures.
