Hello all! Let me introduce myself... my name is Kristina. I am a wifey to my amazing hubby Francisco, a mom to three incredible little ladies a patriot of our blessed USA and a lover of my savior Jesus Christ!! I have been a nurse since 2008. It is my calling. I love people. Love to care for them, cry with them, educate and empower them, advocate for them, hold their hands and come along side them when they've faced some of the most difficult life decisions. I felt truly blessed to call this my JOB I mean I got paid to love on and provide care for people! How cool is that? My dream job was always to Work for Kaiser Permanente and a little over 3 years ago I was blessed when I was Finally offered a position with them. All my hard work and prayers had come to fruition! I LOVED IT! Fast forward to 2020 and like most it was a tough year. My department was asked to be on the front lines outside swabbing patients. With all of the fear and the uncertainty going on, and PPE (personal protective equipment) shortages it was a stressful time. I have a lung disease called asthma so to be out there and exposed in such a way was challenging. BUT GOD! I turned my eyes toward Jesus and he gave me peace about ALL of it. Through daily prayer, bible reading, and an amazing group of prayer warriors, I showed up to care for others when most of the world was quarantined at home. We are nurses. That's what we do. We showed up outside in the extreme heat, extreme cold, rain, Santa Ana winds, fires, using the same n95 mask day after day. WE SHOWED UP. We worked overtime on our feet for 10 to 12 hours straight sometimes with little to no water or bathroom breaks. WE SHOWED UP. Then the talk of vaccines came up. I don't know about ya'll but I am a researcher. The more I prayed and poured over every bit of information I could get my hands on the more I was convicted that this wasn't for me, so I filed a religious exemption and got approved and continued to show up! I went through ALL the hoops testing masking ect. Then this November Kaiser decided for whatever reason they needed more info from those who had filed the religious exemptions and sent me 9 additional questions that were extremely invasive and I thought it was strange but as with all of this I prayed and answered according to what God was putting on my heart. I continued to work and in early December, while working in urgent care trying to take care of my patients, I saw a message that my additional questions had been denied. I was getting placed on an UNPAID leave of absence to give me time to make a decision and right before Christmas none the less. My Job or my religious convictions? My job or my bodily autonomy? After all this time on the front lines with no vaccine it was no vaccine no job?? How could this be? I begged and pleaded with the Lord... It would be so much easier to just do it!! But, He made it clear to me once more I was not to receive this shot. So because I stood with God I lost my JOB and on Jan 10th I received my termination paperwork in the mail. This is not right. Its not right for me. It's not right for you. It's not right for the thousands of nurses out there who felt forced and are now working severely understaffed and even worse recently been asked to come to work WITH covid! This beautiful country and its very foundations are being rocked. I cannot at this time stand silent. With the support of my family and amazing friends I have partnered with a wonderful man and lawyer Dan Watkins to bring Kaiser to accountability for what they have done in denying me my right to religious freedom will you stand and fight with me? Will you help me to get OUR voices heard? ALL of the money raised in this campaign will go towards any legal fees accrued over the length of this lawsuit. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart
