A 5th generation Pennsylvanian, Christina was born in Bristol and raised in Warminster, growing up in a large Irish-Italian, Catholic family rooted here in Bucks County. During tough times, Christina’s father worked two jobs to support their family and served as a representative for his union, defending the rights of his fellow workers.
Christina graduated from Archbishop Wood High School and the University of Pennsylvania, and received a joint law degree and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Villanova Law and Drexel University. After completing an extended internship at a federal correctional facility in Missouri, Christina returned home to Pennsylvania to serve her community.
Christina has spent the last 10 years working to improve access to mental health care and human services, first at a Philadelphia nonprofit where she worked with the Philadelphia Veterans Court to connect our region’s veterans with high-quality services, and now as Deputy Director of the Bucks County Department of Housing and Human Services.
Christina lives in Ivyland with her husband, Todd, and two daughters, Katie and Nora, and currently serves as the only Democrat on the 7-member, elected Ivyland Borough Council.
