Cristina served as Executive Director of Generation Life for 5 years. During her tenure, she developed and launched the Missionary Program. This program revolutionized the outreach efforts of Generation Life, expanding the staff to 30 people, reaching over 10 dioceses worldwide and impacting tens of thousands of young people each year with the messages of life and love. Cristina received Honorable Mention by Our Sunday Visitor as one of the Inspiring Catholics of 2012. Recently, she moved on to be involved with a new initiative that is designed to carry out the vision in an even greater way. Cristina and several of her colleagues founded the Culture Project International with a vision to restore culture through the experience of virtue. The Culture Project proclaims the dignity of the human person and the richness of living sexual integrity through the witness and presentations of young missionaries.

"There's value in networking groups and extreme value in the Catholic Professionals of Greater Philadelphia because members' common denominator is service to the Lord. 'Seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.' Matt 6:33."--Lorraine Ranalli, Media Personality/Communication Strategist
"I have attended several Catholic Business Professional events and had the privilege of speaking at one of them. The camaraderie of a like-minded group like CPGP is palpable when you enter the room. The speakers always provide interesting material and keen insights into our common goal of bearing witness to our faith in every aspect of our lives – particularly the workplace." -- Deacon Alvin Clay III, Parish: Immaculate Conception BVM in Jenkintown, Job Title: Consultant at Davidson Trust Company
