Director of Philanthropy & Special Projects
Christina focuses on our fundraising, communications, and educational initiatives, including our book club. She also manages our annual holiday letter-writing campaign. Christina's dedication to supporting youth in the juvenile justice system spans over 15 years, fulfilling diverse roles as a mentor, advocate, defense attorney, and educator, all with the goal of empowering young lives.
Christina graduated from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, where she focused on Public Interest Law. Her passion led her to represent indigent clients in juvenile delinquency court and, as part of her Equal Justice Works Fellowship, to train over 500 juvenile probation officers in Los Angeles, enabling them to serve as effective educational advocates. Before this, Christina worked at the Maya Angelou Academy as a Student Advocate. She proudly holds a degree from Georgetown University, where her commitment to social justice and youth advocacy took root.
A native Southern Californian, Christina lives in Orange County with her husband and two daughters - one human, one furry. She's an enthusiastic reader and enjoys fostering the love of reading by stewarding her Little Free Library. Christina enjoys Formula One Racing and can be found most weekends cheering on her favorite drivers alongside her whole family.
