Prior to that, she had experience as an owner and operator of a small business.
Her personal endeavors include program development and facilitation. Christina has had the honor of being a mentor/facilitator for Elementary and Middle school students. Her program C.M.A.C.S. was taught to children requiring guidance in the realms of conflict management and avoidance, as well as coping skills that can be used throughout their lifetime. She currently serves on the Governance Committee of a non-profit providing social and emotional wellness for children called The Social Black Belt.
She loves working with individuals and watching them reach their goals and growth potential. She has been fortunate to co-develop and facilitate a workshop for the last four years at the Women's Resource Center called: You are Worthy! Learning to Raise Your Own Bar!
She enjoys traveling the world, yoga, and being the proud parent of a sixteen-year-old son. All of these experiences as well as building houses, and businesses, and going through a divorce personally, have given her valuable experience in managing and relating to a variety of mediation cases.
