In 2008, she led an initiative for children of divorce when invited to speak to Scotland's First Minister and members of Scottish Parliament. Over the past two years, Christina has worked closely with the family lawyer organization, Resolution, to develop the Parenting After Parting program and orchestrate the launch of six pilot regions offering informational workshops for separated parents across England and Wales.

Described as an inspirational and engaging speaker, Christina continues to develop programs and trainings for lawyers, mediators and counselors both nationally and internationally. As a coach, Christina works directly with parents to help them focus on being the best parent they can be.

Christina, who has been married for over fifteen years, also grew up in a divorced family and later became a stepparent. Together she and her husband, Scott, have four wonderful children.
