Director of Marketing and Relationships

Christa was born and partially raised in Rochester, NY before moving to sunny Naples, FL as a young girl. This is where she met her amazing would-be husband. 

But first, she attended college at The Florida State University where she competed in Track & Field and received her BS degree in Physical Education. Christa taught and coached High School in the state of Florida and Texas, married, and started her family of four beautiful children and a fur-baby Cane Corso named Samson.

As God would have it, her experience in coaching and her love for people would serve well. After years of being a Director of Marketing, she excitedly decided to come alongside Dr Oliver Cabrera and Soul Dental to compassionately care for the Port Charlotte Community.

Christa enjoys time with her family, supporting her kids in sports, volunteering, traveling, learning all about local restaurants and businesses, engaging in church, as well as meeting and connecting others for a greater purpose.
