Welcome the 2023 Student Baxter Fellow in Litigation
Christina approaches life with confidence, enthusiasm, and passion. From childhood through college, Christina acted in school and community theater plays while competing on the debate team. Christina graduated from Florida State University with a double bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Interdisciplinary Social Sciences with a concentration in Military History and a minor in Art History. Christina’s love of performance and her passion for arts and entertainment led her to move to Los Angeles to begin her professional acting career. After she was cast in a couple of roles, Christina quickly learned that she was better suited to the more action-packed role of film producer. As a film producer, Christina and a partner founded their production company and produced music videos, tv pilots, and independent films. Outside of her film career, Christina is a serial entrepreneur who has successfully sold a company.
As a bootstrapped film producer and entrepreneur, Christina did most of her own legal work. This is how Christina discovered that she had a knack for the law decided to explore that interest by enrolling in GGU. While at GGU, she was awarded Best Cross Examination and Best Closing Argument in the 2021 Cross & Close Competition and was given the opportunity to flex her performance muscles when accepted into the 2021 STEP program, which she left a better speaker than ever thanks to the trainings of the STEP faculty and the teaching assistants. Most recently she was selected as a Student Director for the TYLA National Trial Competition and an Advanced Mock Trial Teaching Assistant. Christina has mentored students in the 2022 STEP Program as an Evidence and Trial Evidence & Advocacy (TEA) Teaching Assistant. She has also competed on the National Trial Team where she helped her teammates place in numerous competitions.
Beyond her studies, Christina interns for Austin Law Group in San Francisco, is a Law Review Staff Writer, and is President of the Business Law Association where she successfully petitioned to absorb the Entertainment & Sports Law SORG into the BLA. When not working, Christina can be found watching movies, enjoying all things food and wine, and playing with her weird little dog, Frankie.
