Getting to know Christina

What do you enjoy most about working at RTD?

I enjoy the group of people I get to interact with every day. Our clients are truly some of the best I have gotten to work with in my career. 

What makes you good at what you do?

I am very personable and when you combine that with my need to get things done efficiently and well, you have a sure way to provide clients with top notch service.  

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

It is okay to make mistakes, but it is even better when you learn from them to prevent them from happening again.

What’s the most exciting vacation you’ve taken?

I have been fortunate enough to travel to a few places in my lifetime, but my favorite to date has been Paris. I think it is probably one of the most magical and beautiful places on earth.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

I wanted to be rich and happy. I am still working on the rich part.  However, a close second was to go to law school and then become an ambassador or diplomat. If that didn’t work out, I wanted to be a historian or a history professor.
