living for and because of God’s grace
Cristina lives in the desert of Mesa, Arizona with her husband of 16 years and 2 out 4 children; they are a blended family that also have two adult children who currently live in Chicago and Phoenix. She has leaned into her calling of pastor’s wife, coach, mentor, and friend.
Cristina has an incredible work ethic and has been working since the age of 13 when she started as a shampoo girl for a friend’s beauty shop. She has worked as a Director in the non-profit environment and managed a team of 50+ sales reps in a corporate retail setting. Always “leading up” and helping, motivating, and encouraging others to excel and improve, life coaching has been a natural progression for Cristina.
Alongside her husband, Cristina has led premarital counseling, mentoring, and coaching couples and women on an individual basis. She has served with the youth and women throughout her faith journey.
One of Cristina’s greatest passions is working with women to help them see their value in the ways God sees them; helping them to move forward in their God-given path and not look back where shame and guilt reside. In addition to that, she loves helping them to connect with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit as only a former “woman at the well” could. She has faced many challenges including sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, an abusive first marriage, but has experienced the grace and beauty that comes from understanding true redemption experienced by the cross.
As a Certified Life Coach, Cristina desires to walk alongside women to help them see their true purpose and have them experience true and rich relationships with God, themselves, and others.
