Christina moved to Pittsburgh in 2014 to attend the University of Pittsburgh. She graduated with her MBA (concentrating in Operations) and Master of Public and International Affairs. Christina currently works in business development at Reed Smith where she ensures her practice group addresses current client needs as well as anticipates new opportunities. Prior to her graduate education, she was part of the English Language Faculty at the Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra in Santiago, Dominican Republic. In addition to her background working with the administrative side of universities at both Penn State and Pitt, she held non-profit roles including two non-profit fellowships and a logistics internship for a local foundation during her graduate education. Her long history in non-profit, including international medical philanthropy service as an undergraduate, has made her familiar with crafting compelling proposals and accommodating the needs and concerns of a diverse donor base. Christina always welcomes any opportunity to connect and would be happy to get a conversation started on LinkedIn.
