Christina was born and raised in the Northeast, the youngest of two children. Born to parents from a small town in Portugal, she grew up in a small, traditional Portuguese community in West Hartford, Connecticut.
Christina attended Boston College where she graduated with a B.A. in Sociology and Communications. She went on to work as a case manager at Boston Health Care for the Homeless. Christina is a “Double Eagle,” going on to graduate with a law degree from Boston College Law School, where she met Henry. Christina is counsel at Goodwin Procter in the firm’s Employment Practice Group.
Christina married Henry in 2013, just two weeks before he shipped off to Afghanistan with the Marines. They are the proud parents of two sons, John and Diego. They enjoy spending time together as a family reading, going on scavenger hunts, dancing in the kitchen or playing at one of Whittier’s many parks.
