Christina was born and raised in South Florida. She showed an early interest in performing by studying piano, voice, improv, and theatre. As a student, she also appeared on stage in theatrical productions and drama competitions. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in English and earned a law degree from Florida State University. While she was practicing law, she found her way back to acting, performing in local theatre and in films for the Florida State University Film School.
Christina’s career quickly took off after her television debut on A&E’s “The Glades.” Since then, she has played a wide variety of roles, such as a no-nonsense reporter (“Homeland,” “Army Wives,” “Mr. Mercedes”), a scrappy nature photographer (“The Vampire Diaries”), a perky salon manager (“Kevin Probably Saves the World”), and a bitchy doctor (“The Resident”), just to name a few. Christina is fluent in Spanish, and she can be seen in numerous English and Spanish-language commercials.
Christina is also no stranger to the big screen. Recently, she appeared in “The Tomorrow War” with Chris Pratt. She also played the lead role in the feature film “Rockabilly Zombie Weekend,” which was released internationally on DVD and aired on El Rey Network. Other notable projects include supernatural drama “Cassadaga,” horror-comedy “Two-Headed Shark Attack,” "Miracles from Heaven" with Jennifer Garner, and “Below the Surface,” a Lifetime Movie Network thriller. She is also slated to appear in the upcoming comedy feature, “Hypnotized.”
When she’s not on set, Christina is usually hiking, traveling, cooking, spending time with her family, hunting for new restaurants, enjoying a ghost tour, or posting food porn on Instagram. She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA.
