Business Development Coordinator
I am happy you’re here! My name is Christina Schmidt, and I moved to Iowa from Colorado in February of 2021. Although Eastern Iowa is a change from the mountains of Dillon, Colorado, I am not new to the Midwest. I grew up in Cary, Illinois and graduated with a musical theatre degree from Ball State University in Indiana. After graduation, I performed in multiple venues across the country during my time as an actor. In Colorado, I got involved in volunteering at a domestic violence advocacy nonprofit which turned into a full-time job. I found my passion in nonprofit work, and I am thrilled that I get to continue pursuing this passion at Junior Achievement Eastern Iowa as the Business Development Coordinator. I welcome you to introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting you!
Part of My Job :Interacting with my community, meeting new friendly faces, and helping individuals and businesses get involved with Junior Achievement.
Spot in Eastern Iowa: My 150 year old brick home in Mount Vernon. I am new to Iowa, so send your favorite spots my way!
