Years with the school: 1 1/2

Christina grew up in the Bay Area of California and holds a BA in Sociology with a minor in Applied Psychology and Education. After learning what Human Resources was during a job in college she pursued it. She joined the school of social work in January 2020, only two and half months before the pandemic hit. Although it was a challenging transition, she has learned so much in her current role with the school.

Fun fact: I have been in CrossFit since October 2019 and love it!
