Cristina comes to us with a B.A. in Sociology from UCLA, and a M.A. in Psychology from JFK University, and has 4 years of practical experience in the mental, physical, and spiritual health care services. She says, “The years I spent in Catholic education as a student were some of the most instrumental years of my life. I am particularly drawn to SMCES because of its holistic approach to creating life long learners to continue God's work.” Her personal interest lies in reminding children, adults, and elders how much they are loved by God, and using that as a starting point to reach their full potential.
