After a few years she moved out to CO to work with Dan Parker and colleagues at CIOMIT teaching and becoming General Manager for a time. Together Dan and Weldon had/have over 100 years of experience and they passed as much of it as they could on to Christina and the many others they instructed.

In 2019 Christina was certified as a Straubinger Technician and in 2023 she was certified as a Muramatsu technician.

 

After working with Dan for nearly 3 full years, Christina moved back home to OK where she hopes to pass on her knowledge and build a successful music store in OKC near family.
