Proclaiming the dignity of human life has been a lifelong passion of Cristina’s since childhood. Growing up, she participated in prayer vigils, life chains and pro-life marches with her family. While attending The Pennsylvania State University, she served as president of Penn State Students for Life. Upon graduation, Cristina attended the Emmanuel School of Mission in Rome, Italy sponsored by the Pontifical Council of the Laity.

In fall 2007, Cristina joined Generation Life’s full-time staff, serving as Parish Outreach Coordinator, College Outreach Coordinator, and Program Director before being named Director in 2009. During her five-year tenure, she developed and launched the Missionary Program, revolutionizing the outreach efforts of Generation Life. An expanded staff reached over 10 dioceses worldwide, impacting tens of thousands of young people each year with the messages of life and love. Cristina received Honorable Mention by Our Sunday Visitor as one of the Inspiring Catholics of 2012.

In July of 2014, Cristina and several of her colleagues founded the Culture Project International, with a vision to restore culture through the experience of virtue. The Culture Project has provided a formative mission program to 40 missionaries, who have served 41 dioceses and empowered nearly 100,000 students to restore culture by reclaiming sexual integrity and the meaning of life, inviting our culture to be fully alive.
