Christina Romo is excited to join the team at Ampersand, having previously worked at the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) since 2006. She also served as a volunteer Guardian ad Litem for Ramsey County and volunteer crisis counselor with Sexual Offense Services of Ramsey County.
Christina feels very fortunate to have learned from youth who have experienced foster care and adoption about the power of resiliency and the importance of treating youth with dignity and respect, embracing and honoring who they are, reminding them of their value in this world, and truly listening to them—especially when making decisions that impact their lives. She has also had the opportunity to learn from adoptive parents about the joys, sorrows, and challenges of loving and parenting children who have experienced extreme trauma and loss in their lives and what it has truly meant for their families to navigate the realities and complexities of adoption together.
Christina has a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminal Justice from Hamline University.
Christina lives in the Twin Cities area with her husband and their two sons. She enjoys writing, photography, spending time with family and friends, cooking without recipes, singing in the car with her kids, life as a soccer mom and as a soccer coach’s wife, family hikes, and Netflix marathons.
As an adoptee, Christina understands the importance of family and the struggle to find a place to belong. She is passionate about finding families for teens and supporting families through the lifelong journey of adoption and permanency.
