Cristina Jimenez
Cristina spent her childhood as a military brat which provided her the opportunity to see the world differently. She not only spent the last 23 years in the healthcare profession but also spent several years as a recreational cheerleading coach. Coaching made her realize the importance of giving back to our community and how one minute of a person’s time can impact the lives of others. Her biggest blessing in life is being a Mom to two unique individuals. This year Cristina proudly became a grandmother for the first time.
Everyone say HI to Cristina!
