Hi there! I'm a 


Who is she?


The first important thing to know about me is that my name is actually pronounced "Christian," (trust me, it's a long story). From high school Valedictorian to first-generation college grad, my life's journey has been one of extreme highs and rock-bottom lows. 

I have spent my entire life living in sunny Southern California, the Coachella Valley to be exact, and have loved every second of it. Growing up in an area where not many make it out of the local community college, I was blessed to be able to attend Biola University straight out of high school. In May of this year, I became the first person in my family to graduate college; which I see as not only a huge achievement for myself, but also my community of fellow Latinas. 







A mix of office, retail, and food service experience has made me a versatile and adaptable candidate, ready to work in any position.
