Dr. Kristen Stanley was born in Bellevue, Washington and at a young age moved nearby to Gig Harbor where her family lives today.
She completed her undergraduate studies at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas earning a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Afterwards, she returned to Washington where her love for medicine, particularly in pediatrics, continued to grow through service positions and the opportunity to work at a local private practice.
She moved to Arizona for medical school and graduated in 2013 from the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She recently completed her residency at Phoenix Children’s Hospital/Maricopa medical Center.
Dr. Stanley is excited to join Desert Valley Pediatrics and looks forward to providing excellent care for her patients and their families.
