Christina's personal story plus her fresh approach to life after loss has garnered international attention. She's been featured as a Woman Working to Do Good in the White House Blog and has also been featured on PsychCentral, Maria Shriver, NPR and Hay House Radio. Her Huffington Post blogs about life after loss have held the most popular ranking on Impact. Christina is now on a crusade to change the way we live after loss. As the founder of Second Firsts, Christina spends her time speaking, coaching and helping thousands of people to rebuild, reclaim and re-launch their whole lives. Before creating Second Firsts, Christina worked as a therapist and crisis intervention specialist. After losing her husband to colon cancer, Christina experienced the agony of sudden loss firsthand. With two daughters in tow, she began the tender process of transforming her tragedy into a new career, a renewed sense of purpose, and a life full of joy and laughter. Second Firsts was born. Christina’s book, Second Firsts: Live, Laugh and Love Again, was released in November 2013. Quickly ranked as a bestseller on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles, it is now in its second printing run. In 2014, she opened the doors to her new action-oriented, nonprofit social network The Life Starters and presented her first TEDx talk. But as she points out: "This has never been about my story. This is about the work of Reentry. It's about choosing to dance, laugh, love and live again."
