We are excited to announce that Kristina Skinner will be joining One Medical to lead all external communications and PR as the company rapidly expands.

Kristina has been a One Medical member since 2014 and comes from Tesla where she managed global communications for all things on wheels: including Tesla’s Model 3, X and S. Focusing on the impact Tesla’s technology has had on the traditional automotive industry, her PR efforts for Model 3, America’s best-selling premium sedan, included stories about the car’s safety, durability, and performance. She even ventured as far as the Alaskan Tundra to showcase the car’s abilities in sub-zero temperatures. Prior to Tesla, Kristina led communications at two start-ups, Inkling and Peerspace. She started her career on the agency-side at technology-focused PR firms working with brands like Airbnb, Toyota, Mozilla and Flipboard.

Kristina is an innate storyteller who loves crafting narratives that shift public perception. She is passionate about humanizing technical, complicated topics, making them relevant to our everyday lives. At One Medical, she is looking forward to telling stories that exist at the intersection of healthcare and technology, highlighting how patient care improves when technology advances.
