From Wall Street to K Street, Cristina has set herself apart as a trusted advisor, skilled advocate, and effective negotiator who isn’t afraid of long, hardwork. She began her lobbying career in 2004, immediately representing Fortune 500 clients at top-ranked, bipartisan government and public affairs firms in Washington, D.C. Her past clients include major chain retailers, spirits companies, national theme and amusement parks, pharmaceutical firms, and nutrition and wellness companies.

As a founding member and former President of the Hispanic Lobbyists Association and a long stint as the interim CEO of the nonprofit Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), Cristina has served as both a leader and an advocate, promoting communication, ethics, education, and bipartisanship. One of my takeaways of this Podcast Interview with Cristina was this: “Take smarts risk and give yourself permission to fail. It’s okay if I do fail this time and I’ll be able to pick myself up and keep going and try again”
