Outside the Office

Christina is an avid reader and adventurer.

Christina and her husband challenge one another in a regular competition to see who has read the most books each year. Married in the Bahamas, the couple also enjoys annual vacations – mostly to Mexico. Stateside, they tour state and national parks in their RV. Missouri’s Watkins Mill is a favorite. The mountains and canyons of Yellowstone made for more precipitous yet panoramic driving.
