Personal Background

Christina grew up all over the place, but calls Colorado home. She considers herself a “Third Culture Kid” and loves to hear where others identify as home. She enjoys being outside (in reasonable weather), playing Bridge and other strategy games, and spending time with people. Christina is also learning to love reading for fun.

Christina believes everything is formational and is excited about the ways she can grow alongside students at LeTourneau. She looks forward to all the developmental conversations she will share with students here. From her first day on campus, Christina was impressed with the students’ genuine faith, kindness, intelligence, and warmth.
