Christina was born and raised in the east bay. Her love for animals and interest in science began at a very young age. After shadowing a veterinarian in elementary school, she set out on a mission to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
She attended UC Santa Cruz, where she earned a B.S. in Biology and was president of the Pre-Veterinary society. During school, she formed a bond with her Organic Chemistry professor, whom she later adopted her beloved cat Luna from. After graduation, Christina and Luna moved back to the east bay and joined the Bollinger Canyon family. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, photography, baking, and traveling. In pursuit of her childhood dream, she's excited to be attending veterinary school at the University of Edinburgh next fall.
