Christina has been working at OIS since March 2010 but has been employed by IU since May 2005. She oversees client services and frontline operations, including the IU Passport Acceptance Facility, and coordinates enrollment and billing for international health insurance. Working at OIS gives her the opportunity to interact with individuals from around the globe, curate a diverse and culturally-aware mindset, and learn new things about international education every day.
Christina obtained her B.A. in English from IU in 2004. She is currently pursuing an M.S.Ed. in International and Comparative Education at IU.
Originally from Hawai’i, Christina has lived in or traveled to various locations in the United States and abroad, thanks to her father’s service in the U.S. Army and her willingness to traverse the world. Her most memorable international travel moments include riding down the Great Wall of China in a go-kart, marveling at Gaudí’s architectural design of La Sagrada Familia, and exploring the opulence of Neuschwanstein Castle. She also loves experiencing a new city’s culture by eating and drinking her way through it.
