She is so great and fun to work with. I feel like I have a friend in CJ, but also someone who is professionally trained to give me the right advice! The hour flies by because she is such a great conversation facilitator and gives me such food for thought!!

Christina is great. She is very professional, knowledgeable, direct, and caring. She not only provides you with great suggestions to get you where you want to go but also provides you support outside of the scheduled sessions.
