Christina grew up in a small town in Western Minnesota.

It was the sort of town whose main street is lined with small local businesses and where kids ride their bikes to Dairy Queen after softball practice.

For as long as she can remember, Christina’s had a soft spot for kids. She is the oldest of 13 cousins and was a nanny for several families during college.

After college, she worked for large companies and for an international non-profit that focuses on providing critical medical care to kids around the world.  Christina is also a seasoned entrepreneur who has been recognized as a leader in her field. After building and selling two companies, she now spends most of her time caring for her family. She absolutely cannot wait to have a second child.

Christina is passionate about health and wellness - she is quick to help friends/family mend after an illness (take some of her homemade broth and call her in the morning) and loves introducing nourishing foods to kids. Amelia loves veggies almost as much as she loves donuts.

Christina is easy-going, adores her family and friends, and is always positive. She’s been known to argue that the glass is half full even when it’s clearly empty and she’s always there to lend a hand to friends and family.
