Christina moved to New York City in 2011 and was instantly captivated by the city's zest and dynamic rhythms. After graduating cum laude with a bachelor's degree from The King's College in downtown Manhattan, she worked in marketing for a financial services firm focused on providing technology-enabled middle office solutions to hedge funds.
From there, Christina transitioned to charity work where she dedicated two years to non-profit development, focusing her efforts on community outreach, donor relations, database management and event planning. Through creating and managing a grassroots community outreach program, Christina learned the power of strong technical support in relationship building and the importance of organization in the sales cycle.
Christina was raised abroad in a military family, and since coming to New York City has lived in three of the five boroughs. She currently calls Ridgewood, Queens, home and has a keen appreciation for the vast multiculturalism in her neighborhood. In her spare time, Christina enjoys exploring the city via her bike, playing the congas and savoring New York City's artistic scene.
