As the proud daughter of a Korean immigrant Tiger Mom and an Italian American veteran dad and as a first generation college graduate, Christina pursued her career as an educator with the desire to ensure her students’ zip codes wouldn’t determine their destinies in the ways her mother’s had. She eventually became one of the youngest high school principals in the NYCDOE and the turnaround principal/CEO for the first all girls charter high school in NYS. A decade later she went on to start her award winning education & equity consulting company and has worked with a variety of industries spanning from education to healthcare, tech startups to financial services, nonprofits in health and human services and beyond.  

Forward thinking organizations seeking to drive innovation while centering workforce well-being bring Christina in to provide keynotes, trainings and workshops that will Enlighten the Head, Engage the Heart and Empower the Hands because they want to transform the ways their people think, relate and operate.
