She currently serves as Chair of the Human Rights Committee where she coordinates with committee members, UNA-NCA staff and Board Members to create meaningful programs. She is particularly committed to the annual Human Rights Awards Reception and hopes to make this year the most successful reception yet. Christina holds a Master’s degree in Human Rights from University College London and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from The George Washington University. She has over five years of experience in fundraising and over fifteen years of experience advocating for human and civil rights. She currently works for an IT consulting firm as the Operations and Outreach Coordinator. Her passion for human rights is what drew her to UNA-NCA and she is proud to promote the UN’s work and human rights in the Washington metro area and Maryland.

Vision statement: I believe a strong UN is critical to creating peace and stability in this world. Since joining the UNA-NCA, I have actively advocated for the UN and helped to create programs that engage and educate our community. I want to continue to build on the successes of past programs and work with the other board members to improve governance. I hope to help increase membership and to find new ways for volunteers to participate in the organization. I also seek to create new partnerships with people and organizations in our area to strengthen the UNA-NCA and increase visibility. I believe I can contribute to the mission and vision of the UNA-NCA in this role.
