Christina's personal story + fresh approach to 'life after loss' has garnered international attention. She's been featured as a Woman Working to Do Good in the White House Blog and was named the Leading Mom in Business by StartupNation. She blogs about life after loss on Huffington Post, one of her blogs have even made it into the most popular list on Impact.

Christina's first book — Second Firsts: Live, Laugh and Love Again — was released by Hay House on November 4th 2013.

As the founder of Second Firsts, Christina spends her time speaking, coaching and helping thousands of people to rebuild, reclaim and re-launch their whole lives — using the most powerful tool for personal reinvention: the human mind. Before creating Second Firsts, Christina worked as a therapist + crisis intervention specialist. But after losing her husband to colon cancer, Christina experienced the agony of sudden loss, firsthand. With two daughters in tow, she began the tender process of transforming her tragedy into a new career, a renewed sense of purpose, and a life of joy + laughter. Second Firsts was born. But as she points out: "This has never been about my story. This is about the work of Re-Entry. It's about choosing to dance, laugh, love + live again."

"If you're lost. . . if you're gone. . . if you can barely absorb the words on this screen. . . I want you to hold this truth in your heart: when it's your time to go, you won't wish you'd spent more time grieving — you'll wish you'd spent more time living."
