Kristy Solis grew up in Meraux. She graduated from Our Lady of Holy Cross with a bachelor of science in nursing and Loyola University New Orleans with a master of science in nursing. She has practiced as a registered nurse and a family nurse practitioner with a concentration in adult health. After Hurricane Katrina, God led her down another path. She discovered a passion for nursing education and serves full-time as a nursing faculty member at the University of Holy Cross. Kristy’s husband is a chief warrant officer in United States Army. They have two young daughters and one young- at-heart papa. As if life is not hectic enough, she is a full-time student as a candidate for a doctorate. Kristy’s three favorite things to do with her family are pray together, travel and experience new restaurants.
