Allow me to introduce myself.
I’m Christina (she/her).
Being the daughter of a speech-language therapist, I learned rather quickly that there is no superior alternative to open, honest communication. Not only did this teach me about the power of transparency and the critical effects of words, but it also inspired me to do something in which I had a hand in improving the lives of others.
I’m now an alumna of Temple University’s Klein College of Media & Communication, where I earned my B.A. in strategic communication and political science, became certified in social science research and graduated summa cum laude in December 2019. Throughout my college career, I gained invaluable experience in public relations, advocacy and public policy across Greater Philadelphia and abroad, opening my eyes to the deep need for a vibrant social good community.
I get to embrace that interest in tackling social issues each and every day as a social impact communications strategist. From digital campaign development and social media, to writing and strategic messaging, my hands are in a little bit of everything — and I love it. Nonprofits, public agencies, foundations and social impact organizations give so many people a voice, but sometimes they need help figuring out what to say and how to say it. That’s where I come in. And I’m constantly striving to refine the (what seems to be an ever-changing) skill set needed to drive that positive change home.
I’ve also served on the boards of political youth organizations at the local, state and national levels and am currently a programming chair for the Public Relations Society of America’s New Professionals Section. I’ll admit, I’ve had the chance to do some pretty cool things (cue running as a delegate to the DNC and living in Rome).
I’m a tutor and teaching assistant for Mighty Writers, helping kids to think, write and express themselves with greater clarity. On a lighter note, I’m a self-proclaimed news junkie, home cook, bookworm and globetrotter.
