About Christina

Christina has had a remarkable journey. In 2013 she found herself at a loss after dropping out of University where she had been a mature student following redundancy from what she thought was going to be a fulfilling career in the world of events management and hospitality. Looking for a solution that was an alternative to unemployment, and following on from an interest in using social media for business, she found a small marketing company called Green Umbrella on her doorstep and started work as a freelance social mediator. She realised almost immediately this was going to be her world and threw herself into learning and growing her skills. Shortly after joining the team, Christina became a full-time employee and progressed into being a key leader in the business, second only to the founder. The world of social media and digital marketing had become Christina's life, her reputation as a speaker and voice of expertise resulted in Christina taking the next logical step. In 2019 she had no hesitation in buying Green Umbrella Marketing becoming the sole owner and taking over as Managing Director.

Going from redundant and almost rudderless to business owner and mentor hasn’t all been plain sailing though. Life, as they say, ‘happens’ and on the road to her current success Christina has suffered more than her share of personal challenges. Probably the biggest of these was the operation needed to relieve the constant pain and declining mobility she was experiencing due to a degrative spine condition. If anything, recovering from the operation and the challenges that brought only made her more determined to succeed. What was still a fledgling, almost ‘kitchen sink’, business back in 2013 is now one of the leading and most respected digital marketing agencies specialising in the recruitment industry. It has been an incredible business and personal journey so far, but she is a long way from finished on her path.
