Get to know Christina:

What was your first job? Camp Counselor for a preschool

Are you an early bird or a night owl? Early bird for sure.  If I am awake after 11pm it’s nothing short of a miracle.    

What’s one of your favorite memories from the past year? Favorite memory this past year was waking up Christmas morning in my own house.  My husband and I bought our first home days before the pandemic began. 

What energizes you outside of work? I am highly food motivated and can often be found involuntarily dancing when I eat! 

What’s one professional skill you’re currently working on? I am working on leadership which ultimately means I am striving to be more confident in myself.  I often second guess myself even if I know the solution/answer. 

What do you do to turn things around when you’re having a bad day? When I am having a bad day, I like to go for a walk to both process the struggle of the day and then force in some positive thoughts.  A good playlist ALWAYS helps! 

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit? Hydration!  I have one of those water bottles that lights up when it is time to drink.  I was VERY good when I first got the bottle back in December 2019, but I have fallen off.  

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend? On the weekend I am usually spending time with family and friends and there is almost ALWAYS food involved!

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from? Best advice I was given was actually my high school mantra “Be who you are and be it well”.  

We’re so happy you’re on the team, Christina! Welcome to Simpli!
