About Christina

bt_bb_section_bottom_section_coverage_image

I don't have a pretty "career story".

Having lived many lifetimes already, my journey is, frankly... all over the place.

I’ve reinvented, self-taught, and immersed myself to create results across a wide range of fields and experiences.

This is highly valuable to those willing to look past their beliefs of what a career path “should” look like.

I make things happen. I learn from what I’ve made. Then, apply those learnings to the next thing. It doesn’t matter whether it’s making music, making teams, making a business process, or making a transformational conversation.

The way that I observe and implement the work I do, the fundamental principles and patterns are inherently cross-functional.

My Values:

Christina is part thoughtful visionary, part spirited builder and all parts love. I marvel at her sense of quiet attention, deep curiosity and ease with who she is. In private conversation, she has the ability to ask nuanced and insightful questions that lead to greater understanding. At the same time, she’s able to scale that awareness and attentiveness to engage an audience of hundreds. Love seeing so much grace and wisdom so early in life.

The Missing Piece for Your Business to Thrive

Is your growth bottlenecked by building your operations and team?

I help early stage startups or established online businesses with small teams with their priorities, people, and processes:

Prioritize what matters the most.
Work through the biggest bottlenecks and opportunities.
Build key systems and processes across business operations.
Manage the people to implement change.

I take an integrative coaching approach where I work closely with leaders to understand what matters most and problem solve through implementation.
