Coach Cristina

Cristina may spend her days in the office, but outside of work hours, she’s doing anything but sitting inside. She lives for travel and adventure. While Italy will always have a special place in her heart, it was a lacrosse team trip in Australia that really got her heart pumping. Cristina discovered her inner daredevil when she went skydiving on the coast and bungee jumped in the rainforest on the SAME DAY! She recovered by holding koalas and feeding kangaroos at a local animal sanctuary. 

Before becoming a financial planner, Cristina was a Division I collegiate lacrosse player turned coach. Throughout her decade of coaching, she loved the challenge of helping guide her team toward success. She focused on taking educated risks, embracing the little actions that amount to larger ones, knowing what is or isn’t in your control, and making the best decision you can in the moment. Cristina stays connected to the lacrosse community by coaching youth lacrosse and serving as the alumnae ambassador for the Rutgers Women’s Lacrosse team. You can also find her spending time with her family and friends, on the golf course, or paddle court (a sport she learned during COVID-19).
