Cristina is a sought-after essayist, publishing as a ghostwriter and under her own byline. Check out a selection of her work below and visit Mujeres Problemáticas to keep up with her work.

Having spent over a decade in nonprofits, Cristina knows how to run an organization. She’s stewarded seven figure gifts, crafted multimillion-dollar budgets, and built sustainable programs while doing it.


Cristina has the unique skill of knowing how to get large numbers of people to care about what she cares about -- to the point of taking action. As the Director of Communications at The Representation Project, she stewarded the great expansion of the #AskHerMore campaign, the launch of #RepresentHer, #AskMoreOfHim, and so much more. Prior to that, she used those same skills to help young people build health relationships and avoid abuse.
