Christina Bernardin

Christina Bernardin is passionate about learning what drives individuals to make decisions, and communicating those decisions in the form of storytelling. She has a compassionate approach, but is relentless in her goal to enable her clients’ success by helping them find their voice and vulnerability, which favorably distinguishes their applications from the competition.

Christina got accepted at every top business school she applied to – all 5. She attributes that success to digging into the reasons behind her decisions and describing her career goals in an exciting and relatable way.

Christina has a B.S. in Accounting from the University of Southern California and an MBA from Harvard Business School. Prior to business school, she was a management consultant at PwC, serving a range of industries, including finance, healthcare, agriculture, and technology. After business school, she took the role as a developer manager at a prestigious real estate developer, Boston Properties. Christina has experience effectively communicating the pivots she has made in her career and takes pride in helping others do the same.

At USC, Christina was a D I athlete on the Rowing Team and Vice President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. At HBS, she held board positions for the Real Estate Club, the African American Student Union, and the Entrepreneurship Club.

Although a native New Yorker, Christina now lives in San Francisco. She spends her time delivering keynote speeches at non-profit organizations, wine tasting in Napa, salsa dancing, and cooking. She loves to travel, and recently completed trips to Spain, Kenya, Colombia, and South Korea.
