Kristen Prince is currently the COO for Andrew Paul Abraham PT PA, a physical therapy corporation that serves central and northeast Arkansas. During her service, the practice group has experienced significant growth. Kristen played an integral role in the successful, voluntary participation in Medicare’s Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), led the practice group through an extensive EMR-software transition, implemented a 360-degree employee performance process and helped her team navigate a 60% reduction in patient volume as a result of COVID-19 with no layoffs or closures. She feels especially honored to serve in an industry committed to wellness and on a team with a shared commitment to positively impacting the community through their work.

Kristen earned her MBA from Harding University, where she went on to serve as the University’s Insurance Coordinator, assisting in risk management and contributing to the development of the university’s first Safety Program. Her accomplishments working in the healthcare business sector include the role of Quality Control Specialist for a national healthcare auditing firm, receiving the Certified Patient Accounts Technician (CPAT) designation through the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management, and serving as Interim Clinic Manager for a local medical clinic.

Kristen loves adventure and spends as much time as she can exploring new places with her husband and son. They enjoy hiking, food tours in new cities and concerts together.
