Christina Desjardins

HUMBLE.  Al Desjardins describes his wife, Christina, as a caring, behind-the-scenes worker.  As a mother of two, Christina would often meet with the nurse at Moore Middle school to find out how many children needed coats, hats, and mittens when the cold weather arrived.  Then, she would not only donate whatever jackets her children didn’t need, but also buy whatever was missing to help other parents who couldn’t afford to buy them.  She did this anonymously.  While her husband ran the Candia Youth Athletic Association, Christina worked tirelessly to help the non-funded organization doing a variety of tasks but never asking for recognition.  She works two jobs to help pay for both of her children who are now attending college.  As the event/wedding coordinator at Candia Woods Golf Course, Christina has a sterling reputation, which is no easy task when dealing with brides on a daily basis!  She is often approached by former clients who tell her she was wonderful.  Christina is a quiet leader who has been invested in a lifetime of compassion, hard work, and respect for others.
