Christina P. brings quite a diverse background to the Powerhouse team. Originally from south Louisiana, she obtained her bachelor’s degree in recreational therapy from Grambling State University in December 2000. After two years of working in the field, she found herself in debt like every recent graduate, so she enlisted in the Coast Guard as an electronic technician. Two years into her first tour, she met her husband, and for 18 years, they were co-enlisted.

After 20 years in the service, it was time to retire. During Christina’s transition, she participated in the SkillBridge program, where she discovered a passion for grant writing and research. She is attending Grand Canyon University to obtain her MBA in business analytics to be a better asset to clients.

In her personal life, she loves her husband, her motorcycle, her 14-year-old dog (her study partner), and the great outdoors.
