Christina is an Indiana native. She was a nonprofit leader at Kiwanis International where she focused on community and economic development around the world. When Christina realized the needs of her community were not being met, she took it upon herself to run for State House. Once she won, she served in the Indiana General Assembly with a reputation of ‘getting things done for people,’ passing over 60 bills with bipartisan support. Christina is running for Indiana’s 5th Congressional District to “get things done for Hoosier families.” As a single mom, she knows the struggles of providing for her son even when she could not provide for herself, and she knows the value of putting others first.
