Loyola Marymount University where she received a BBA in Marketing
Cristin was born and raised in Southern California. She is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University where she received a BBA in Marketing. A lifelong dancer in many disciplines, she then crossed over into musical theater and eventually choreography. She has had the pleasure of choreographing for a youth musical theater company for years and enjoys teaching and working with her teen students (favorite shows include The Music Man and Shrek!). When her oldest child chose MTCA to guide her through the college audition process, Cristin eagerly followed along and learned an immeasurable amount of information along the way. After surviving the process with her daughter (and enjoying it!), she decided to pursue college advising as a way to pay it forward. She completed extensive training with MTCA College Advisor Amy Breslow and attended the Independent Educational Consultants Association Summer Training Institute. The lessons she learned, combined with her experiences as a performer and instructor of young people, give her a distinctive understanding of every stage of the college audition process. As a mom to two teenagers, she can also relate to the delicate balance that must exist in guiding the process while also providing support and encouragement as students discover their own unique voices.
