Fun Facts

The best advice Christina has ever received is “The true joy is in giving, not receiving.”

For a brief time, Christina lived in Galway, Ireland, where she served hot tea and scones while working in a small eatery.

Not everyone knows that Christina is secretly interested in becoming a birdwatcher.

As a child, she wanted to be a veterinarian because of her love of animals. Her career interests took a turn after she enrolled in a sign language class and discovered the field of speech pathology. After that class, she knew she wanted to work with individuals with communication and swallowing impairments.
