Director of Consulting Services
Christina believes that each of us should do what we are able to improve our communities. She has extensive non-profit and coalition management, communications and outreach experience, and has worked with businesses, non-profits, and government entities as staff, consultant, and volunteer for more than 30 years. Christina’s work includes strategic planning, policy development, communications, stakeholder outreach, public engagement campaigns, legislative coordination and strategy, and non-profit organizational development.
Since 2009 she has focused her career on supporting health reform efforts. She managed communications for the coalition of groups that successfully lobbied for health reform legislation before the 2009 Oregon Legislature, and helped lead the stakeholder outreach and developed survey and assessment tools to gather information to inform planning efforts by the Oregon Health Authority’s Office of Health IT. Before joining CedarBridge she was the Senior Policy Analyst at OCHIN, a health IT innovation non-profit supporting federally qualified health centers across the country.
Deeply engaged in the community, Christina always tries to find the time to serve on at least one non-profit board or committee each year.
Christina’s favorite bridges are the Hawthorne Bridge in her current home of Portland, Oregon, and the Roebling Suspension Bridge in Cincinnati, Ohio the city where she grew up – both old bridges that continue to serve their communities.
