get to know me
Hey there! Je m appelle Christina, et toi?*
I haven't always been a designer but most would say I've always had an eye for design. I started my career in the wedding industry in 2012 as a planner and then shifted to working in venues as the catering sales manager. I always found myself redesigning the menus and creating the open house invitations. For some reason, I strangely loved this more than my day job.
Halsey put my career into a great perspective for me, "I spent a long time watering a plant made out of plastic and I curse the ground for growing green." My career in events gave me so many fundamental properties to now do what I love most.
On the side in 2018, I began designing wedding invitations for friends and working with small businesses on various marketing material needs. In 2020, my husband and I had our first daughter and while I was on maternity leave COVID-19 hit and I was furloughed from my corporate day job in events. It was time to turn this side hustle into the real deal.
Copper Cactus Company is an outlet for my passion of digital design while working with small businesses and luxury wedding clients. I stay at the forefront of all the latest trends so I can provide my clients with modern and stylish products. From the initial strategy to the final outcome — I offer guidance and support throughout the whole process.

*Ever since I took French in high school, anytime I need to introduce myself I want to say Je m appelle, Christina which translates to "I call myself, Christina." So I figured why not say it here?
