Christina grew up in Southern Maryland then moved to Baltimore to earn a B.A. in History and a Teaching Certificate from Loyola University in Maryland. In 2001, Christina and her husband headed west and landed in the Sandia Mountains east of Albuquerque, NM. It was in these mountains where she learned to climb. Since she caught the climbing bug, Christina has become an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, started a climbing program for the Girl Scouts, and teaches with the Youth Education Program of the Colorado Mountain Club.

Christina’s professional career has had the threads of marketing and organizational development running throughout. She was VP of Marketing for a technology transfer firm, led advertising for the University of New Mexico Press, and served as the Director of Membership, Volunteer Development and Program for the Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails. Her latest move brought her to Boulder, CO, to work for Eldorado Climbing Walls as the Marketing Manager.
