Miss A Columnist

Christine Alhambra is originally from Annapolis, Maryland and recently made the move to Arlington, VA., working in DC. In Annapolis she worked as the managing editor at an international boating magazine, traveling, writing, and living aboard boats across the country. This new start included a job change and of course, new surroundings. Change is always exciting, but also requires getting comfortable outside of her normal comfort zone. Christine studied Journalism in college and has a passion for travel, fashion, food, beauty products, shopping (it's a problem!), and running; and recently joined in on the Crossfit phenomenon.
