Let's get to know Chrissy
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I am the oldest of two children as well as the oldest of 25 grandchildren and a 4th generation Sicilian.
I was a Reserve Police Officer for 4 years prior to my current career as a Sales Meeting Planner. Looking for a change of pace, I relocated to San Diego in 1996 for the beach and palm trees.
In 2008 we had the amazing opportunity to live abroad in Naples, Italy. We lived in an Italian villa, obtained an Italian driver’s license, drove an Italian car, and became fluent in the language. We enjoyed many travels before returning stateside in 2010.
After returning from Naples, I developed a passion for global travel both personally and for business. It was often during my travels that I discovered that "talking to strangers" became divine appointments.
I enjoy serving my community, paying it forward, discipling and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Last but not least, I absolutely love being a mom and am a big kid at heart!
Speaking of being a mom, I wouldn't be one if not for my prides and joys - my bambinis. Let me introduce them now!
To encourage and inspire mothers across the globe.
Special emphasis on low-income single mothers who may not have resources available to them or knowledge of them.
To provide hope and encouragement to mothers whose children have become angels.
To spread love and light to mothers experiencing extreme adversity.
To fulfill my purpose in discipling others to know the Lord as I lead by example.
To continue to love the Lord with all my heart 1st above all others.
I have written a book sharing my testimony that is currently with an editor. It is my personal goal to raise enough funds to have it published for distribution in support the above mission and purpose.
