Hailing from Watkinsvile, GA, Christa Teasley brings a brilliant smile and positive outlook to her patients and coworkers.
Ms. Teasley holds an M.S. as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Brenau University where she also completed her B.S.N degree after obtaining her B.B.A. in Risk Management and Insurance from the University of Georgia. Ms. Teasely realized her appreciation for the nursing field while she was devoting time helping in a nursing home during her final year at UGA. Immediately after her graduation Ms. Teasley took a clerical position at Athens Regional Medical Center (ARMC) and began to chart her career by serving as a nursing tech in the ARMC emergency department and began attending nursing school. She worked six years in the critical care arena working in Intensive Care Unit as well as the Cardiac Cath Lab. As a nurse practitioner, she has gained experiences in multiple fields such as women’s health, pediatrics, emergency medicine as well as primary care.
Ms. Teasley decided to join Athens Neurological Associates in 2013 because of the physicians' outstanding reputation and the diversity of patient care provided. Ms. Teasley especially enjoys working in the fields of M.S. and epilepsy and likes being able to provide treatment for patients with both chronic and acute illness. The quick pace of activity at Athens Neurological Associates fits Ms. Teasley well and she feels that she thrives working with a practice that gets to treat such a diverse patient roster on a daily basis.
Christa Teasely holds multiple nursing certifications and recently was awarded a National Certification for Multiple Sclerosis Caring. Ms Teasley is one of only a few NPs in the North Georgia area holding this certification. As an avid contributor to many community programs, Christa particularly enjoys taking part in the Athens MS Walk and various fund raising efforts for cancer research. Additionally Christa has been an active member of the Watkinsville First United Methodist Church choir for over 25 years! Beyond her many professional and community achievements, as a single mother Christa is most proud of having raised two strong and healthy boys; one who resides in Colorado and her teenage son who is an active high school football player.
