Christina has been in remission from schizophrenia, and out of the hospital, for over 19 years. She currently works as a professional librarian, a job she’s held for 12 years. In June 2000, she graduated from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn with a Masters in library and information science (MLS).
Christina is a contributing editor to SZ magazine, where she writes the Living Life column and also wrote the Recovering Together Q&A panel. For New York City Voices, the mental health advocacy journal, she writes the Bruni in the City column.
A dynamic motivational speaker, she does public speaking engagements for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), as well as for the Consumer Speakers’ Bureau of the Mental Health Association of New York City. Over the years, she has talked to hundreds of peers, family members, college students, professionals and the general public about living well in recovery.
Christina's memoir, Left of the Dial, and recovery guide, Live Life Well, will be published shortly.
