“I am so enthusiastic to be working with families and children in Lincoln County,” said Cristina. “I think I’ve been an advocate for children since I was five. Even then, I knew how important it was to support children.”
Cristina has worked for many years with families and children as a social worker in schools and medical clinics. She and her husband served in Honduras in the Peace Corp and both speak Spanish.
Cristina moved to the Oregon coast over two years ago when her husband took a position as Education Specialist at Yaquina Head Light House. They moved from southern Arizona with their daughter.
