Meet the Author


Christina Smith is an entrepreneur, consultant, mother, and published author. “Joseph’s Journey” is her first children’s picture book.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, she grew up in a house with 3 children, WITHOUT the white picket fence and no dog! However, there was lots of love and laughs to go around. When she was about 10 years old, she thought she was going to be the “next coming” of Whoopi Goldberg! Well, “life happened” and “that” did NOT happen, but in 2014 she was able to cross ONE ITEM off of her bucket list and perform stand-up comedy in front of a live audience.

When she’s not homeschooling her son or driving him all around town to his various activities, some of Christina’s favorite things to enjoy are: PEET’S COFFEE, the local library, a throw-your headback, “that brought tears to my eyes” kinda laugh; organic, gluten-free, dairy free, non-gmo food (did we mention she’s from the BAY AREA?) and good music.

Christina is a certified graduate/alumnus of, certified professional speaker/author, George Ramirez’ “Present with Purpose” (2008) & two-time student of his “The Miracle in the Mirror” programs. She has received a Certificate of Recognition from California State Assembly in Honor of Graduating from the Women’s Initiative for Self Employment and dedication to empowering the quality of her life and her community (2007).

Additionally, she is a student of Certified Rebirthing-Breathwork Practitioner, Iris Nelson. She holds an Associates degree in Legal Administration/Paralegal Studies from Heald Business College.
