Christina MarqUEz


     Born in Newport Beach, Christina spent most of her life in Southern California before moving to New Braunfels in 2015. A thirst for adventure led her on a back-and-forth journey between the West Coast and the Lone Star State, but Christina could not stay away from Texas for long. Currently a Program Coordinator at Integrated Interventions, she brings a plethora of therapeutic experiences to the table. Working as a case manager in a variety of non-profit settings (rehabilitation centers, at-risk young adult homeless shelters and domestic violence shelters), Christina is passionate about her community and strongly dedicated to the mission of giving back to others. She fondly recalls the experiences of volunteering for her community before she was old enough to ride a bike. The call to help people is deeply ingrained in her personal and professional life.
     When she is not working Christina gravitates toward musical endeavors. She is a wonderful multi-instrumentalist and can play piano, acoustic guitar, bass, and ukulele. She has also got behind the microphone as a vocalist in previous projects. Christina also has experience with teaching music and can use this skill set while working with students in the program at Integrated.
     Christina is working toward furthering her education in Social Work, with hopes of specializing in psychology and working with young adults.
