Beyond her professional pursuits, Christina is deeply committed to serving her community. She actively serves as a board member for the Phoenix Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, Awakening Seed School, and the All Saints’ Episcopal Day School Parent Association. She takes immense pride in her association with Georgetown University, having devoted approximately 15 years to the Alumni Admissions Program Arizona committee, where she conducts interviews with applicants from across the Valley.
Although originally hailing from Orange County, California, Christina’s life experiences have also taken her to various parts of South America and Asia. She has a passion for extensive travel and boasts conversational fluency in both Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Her diverse interests include a love for cooking and baking, maintaining an active lifestyle through yoga and her Peloton bike, savoring the natural beauty of Arizona, and cherishing quality time spent with her family and friends.
