Christina, Founder & Owner

Christina uses her expertise in nutrition, pregnancy, and fitness to help women achieve their health goals and improve their overall wellbeing.  She was inspired to become a health advocate at an early age while caring for the children her parents fostered.  It was the spark that led to her dedication to women’s health.  Christina is a certified nutritionist, lactation consultant, birth doula, and postpartum doula with a combined 12 years of experience.  When she isn’t coaching or leading a workshop you can find her engaged in her church fellowship, enjoying the outdoors, making homemade non-toxic products or cooking another batch of her famous sofrito.
