As a conference speaker and retreat leader, I infuse my presentations and workshops with creativity, courage, and compassion. 

Some topics I currently present on:

  • Creative identity, leadership, and community

  • Authentic living

  • Letting God fill in our gaps
  • Writing craft 
  • Spiritual disciplines

From my experience as a creative writer and poet, I bring a unique story-based slant to my work. 

I am committed to bringing excellence to your event. It's a privilege to work with you and design a presentation to inspire and transform.

Christina delivers a moving message with poise and confidence. Her presence is calming and soothing as she warmly invites listeners to partake of her descriptive, thought-provoking words.

Christina’s way of engaging with the audience is paramount. Her care of words and ability to connect with the audience is exactly why I could listen to her all day! She is a proven leader and champion for writers, poets, and speakers. Listening to her speak made me feel respected and valued as a writer. I genuinely felt that she cared for me as a person. This is a reflection of the power in words and love in her delivery. I’m blessed the world over to have sat in her session.
