International Student Programs Coordinator


Cristina, otherwise known as CC, enjoys interacting with students and learning about their goals, aspirations and dreams while studying at UCSB. Spending more than 5 years overseas herself, she often pauses to remember what it felt like to navigate her surroundings in a completely different part of the world with unique customs and cultural norms. Having this knowledge, she can relate to students who might be homesick or bewildered by the American “way” of approaching everything from driving to writing a paper for class. When not at OISS, you can find her out in nature or participating in mindfulness training.
