Christina is ready to join a generation of young women working for better representation in our state and country. As a local educator and mother of four, she knows first-hand the opportunity gaps that exist for Vermonters from historically marginalized backgrounds because of systemic racism, income inequality, and our general lack of awareness and funding for mental health needs. Christina also understands the effects the pandemic has had on children and families in Vermont.
As a Chicago-area native, Christina moved to Vermont in 2010 with her family. Now, her four children all attend Hinesburg Community School, and she works as a Librarian and Social Studies teacher at Champlain Valley Union High School. Christina holds an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Vermont, with a focus in School Librarianship.
Christina believes it is more important than ever to send a strong Democratic voice to Montpelier to advocate for paid family leave and universal childcare, protecting voter access, equitable and affordable education, expanding healthcare and mental health services, environmental justice, and a promotion of equity in all aspects of government and its services. She is ready to answer this call as the State Representative for Chittenden 4.
