Christiana was born and raised in San Mateo and is a true Bay Area native. She graduated from Cal State East Bay with a bachelors in Communication and shortly after began working at Radio Disney, Bay Area focusing on promotions and marketing. After four magical years working with the company, Christiana made the decision to follow her true passion and earned her Masters degree in Education with an emphasis in counseling from San Jose State University. During the program, she spent the summer of 2010 in Zambia, Africa teaching and counseling local children from all walks of life. Christiana spent the year that followed counseling at a local high school. In 2011 Christiana found Fusion and spent the next three years as the Director of Admissions and Outreach for Fusion Academy San Mateo and Fusion Los Gatos. In 2015 Christiana opened Fusion Academy Palo Alto as Head of School and is thrilled to be returning home to the school where her Fusion career began. Seven years later Christiana still believes finding Fusion has truly been a gift, and is a perfect fit.
In her free time Christiana enjoys spending time with her little girl, husband and French bulldog, Mr. Chase. Together they enjoy, traveling, cheering on the Giants, Niners, and Warriors and watching Wheel of Fortune! If Christiana is not busy doing any of those things, you may find her at a concert, lost in a good book or at a Pure Barre class.
