Hola! I'm Cristina and I am from Salinas, California from the Central Coast of California and have also lived in San Diego, California for many years. I am both a Northern Cali and Southern Calif girl! Since I am a traveler I do not stay in one place. I am available worldwide.
I attended the University of California, San Diego and earned my Bachelor of Science. I also attended National University in San Diego and earned my Master of Education and Teaching Credential. I was an Educator for many years. But, now I am realizing my dream and I am helping clients realize theirs. I am so excited about the journey I am on! I have come a long way and I am right where I need to be.
My passion for planning events started in high school where I planned and coordinated a successful fashion and talent show that packed the high school gym. The feeling of accomplishment is still vivid in my mind. For numerous years after, I was planning and coordinating events. Planning social events for friends, family, and co-workers on the side while I was a full time Educator was my thing. I loved it! I then decided to change careers and enter the world of weddings and I am so glad I did. I learned so much as a Wedding Coodinator for a resort where I coordinated and helped plan over sixty weddings. Working with clients and helping to make their day special is a wonderful feeling.
I am certified in Planning Events and accredited in Event Design. I am now focusing on my true passion, Event Design. I have an alternative way of thinking or have so called nerdish ideas so I love working with clients that prefer a unique look, one that is not the norm. Transforming any space with elegance to wow your guests is what I do. I am at your side every step of the way for your Design needs for any special occasion. I welcome all backgrounds. I look forward to hearing from you!
I speak Spanish and can also conversate in Italian. I grew up speaking Spanish in a Mexican household. I learned to speak Italian after six weeks of classes in Rome, Siena, and Florence. I am friendly and kind. I love dogs, wine, movies, concerts, and traveling. I am always up for dancing to eighties music and will always say yes to going to my favorite country, Italy. My favorite movie of all time is Pretty Woman and currently my favorite movies are from DC Comics/Universe including Man of Steel because Superman is my favorite superhero. I am a true DC nerd!
