About Christina

Originally from America, Christina has resided in Cape Town since 2008. She is the Marketing & Communications manager for an African Renewable Energy Solutions company  as well as a writer, speaker & podcast host. She is incredibly passionate about personal development and living the life of your dreams, despite the challenges you experienced in the past or the pitfalls you face now. She speaks on this and more in her motivational talks as well as on her Podcast “The Honest Hour”, found on all available Podcast listening platforms.
Christina studied Marketing & Communications, with a minor in Information Communication Technology, at San Diego State University. After moving to Cape Town in 2008 to be with her Pretoria born husband, she endeavoured on an adventurous entrepreneurial path in the appropriately dubbed “Silicon Cape” where innovation and start-ups are the name of the game. Her heart rooted in entrepreneurship from her early high school days as a promotional model and then promotional event manager in University, Christina found a passion in growing her small business Event Stars, a professional event staffing agency in Africa. Building the database from 0 to 3000 staff nationwide and servicing clients such as Google, Distell & Vodacom, Christina expanded the company after 5 years to include social media training and management, renaming it Star Social Media. She sold it in 2015 to focus on starting a family before returning to the entrepreneurial and marketing world in 2017.
Grateful for her roots in marketing & communications, Christina’s truest calling lies in storytelling, especially the stories that inspire. Coming from humble & tragic beginnings in her own life, Christina has chronicled her own story of being abandoned by her biological family at the age of 10. She has written about her trauma and transitions through abandonment and adoption in her new memoir coming out in 2020. Further, she is moved by the unique journeys of others and how we all have our own trauma and testimonies of upliftment in our personal lives. Christina believes that it is through openness and sharing that we can connect more on a human level, allowing society to rise together.
Her hopes for her future are to inspire others through her book, her motivational talks and her Podcast Interviews on the Honest Hour.

You can listen to more about my story on a recent Podcast interview I did at
Following my podcasts and talks this year, I have been overwhelmed and honoured by the number of listeners and guests who request to meet me one on one. While I am not a qualified therapist or coach, I now offer my time as a mentor to women who are actively seeking my guidance and support in their own journeys in life, motherhood or entrepreneurship.
Contact me today to book a personal development consultation.

Christina’s inspiring and down to earth talks are rooted in her own humble beginnings marked by tragedy and trauma.
Born in to a poor and uneducated family, as the first of five children, Christina was subjected to neglect and abuse before she was abandoned at the age of 10 and adopted by a new family. For years she coped through people pleasing, attention seeking and numbing that included eating disorders and dependent drinking before she reached her own rock bottom and opted for genuine wholehearted living instead of escaping. She sought therapy, she wrote through her pain, she started living authentically and she found her happy truth. She now wants to help others find the same joy in their own lives.
Christina’s enthusiasm for others on their journey to authentic happiness is truly inspiring. She firmly believes we can all start living a better life now, regardless of what we went through in our past.
