Hey, my name is Cristina! Born in El Paso, Texas, raised across the border in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua and moved to Houston, Texas about 4 years ago. Graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Science in Human Nutrition and am currently doing research in diabetes and nutrition at Baylor College of Medicine in the Texas Medical Center. I am also a zumba instructor, skier during winter season, marathon runner and an Ironman triathlete.
