In the words of others...

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

“Cristy has shown immense dedication and is truly an invaluable asset. She has an incredible drive and works promptly. She follows through on her commitments and knows how to prioritize her tasks. She takes direction very well, but also has a rare gift to understand exactly what you want without much direction being given. She has significantly helped the company and me. She is not only a diligent worker, but also a kind, trusting, and responsible young lady. She has a willingness to help people and that is a wonderful and rare quality. She is not one to stray away from problems. She is very professional and the best speller in our company. Her communications skills make her a highly respected professional.

“I have had the good fortune to work with and supervise Cristy for nearly three years. She is a full-time bilingual Research Associate on our National Institute on Drug Abuse funded study to test screening and brief motivational intervention for drugs in a trauma service. Cristy started with our Health Behavior Research and Training Institute as an undergraduate and from the very beginning of her employment she showed an enthusiasm and dedication to learning all she could about research and specifically about conducting clinical intervention trials in medical settings. She quickly became proficient in all aspects of the research for which she was assigned. Her current tasks include tracking and scheduling all of our study participants. Cristy has exhibited excellent organizational and logistical skills, as well as initiative as she developed procedures and data base systems that effectively and efficiently handle multifaceted staff and patient schedules. Cristy always exhibits enthusiasm and creativity in performing her work, even the tedious and mundane, and especially when difficult and challenging. Cristy always exhibits professionalism and respect when communicating with our study participants. I must add that Cristy is a delightful young woman, who is always upbeat.

Ana-Cristina Gonzalez

Director of Development, University Catholic Center Manager


“Cristy was a communications intern at the University Catholic Center when I was the development director there. She was in charge of the electronic newsletter, as well as creating on-line campaigns for special fundraising events. In order to create the newsletter, Cristy took the assigned theme for the month and came up with the interviews and stories that would be featured. Cristy had to interview people...listen to their story, while taking notes that captured what they were saying. The interviews happened face-to-face, over the phone, or over email. Cristy is very personable and all enjoyed talking to her or communicating with her over email. She is a great listener and tried to capture the emotions and time that the person was speaking about. Technology is also something that Cristy is very interested in. She would often reference her marketing classes and trends that she was learning about. Often times we would try to incorporate these trends into what we were doing in the development office. She did not shy away from any challenges that technology created, from learning a new electronic newsletter format to creating and converting image files to be used to advertise things. Cristy was a great asset to our development team and organization. She helped raise thousands and thousands of dollars through her work. She is easy to work with and very hard working. I would recommend Cristy for any job that requires professionalism, attention to detail, and innovation.”
