Christina Baer, Director of Learning and Education

Christina_Baer Christina Baer Director of Learning and Education

Education: Christina earned Bachelors of Science degrees in both Criminal Justice and Psychology, as well as minors in Biology and Spanish, at Penn State University. Although she was taught to value volunteerism at an early age, her studies helped solidify her interest in community benefit work.

Experience: Prior to joining the team at PANO, Christina spent seven years in the community benefit sector working at a comprehensive domestic violence prevention and support agency in Bucks County, PA. She began as the Medical Community Educator for A Woman’s Place (AWP) before serving as the Education & Training Manager, Director of The Prevention Project, and most recently as Director of Innovation & Strategy. During her time with AWP, Christina led county-wide prevention efforts by coordinating domestic violence awareness education and training for various community groups including schools, hospitals, businesses, faith groups and special interest organizations. She also facilitated various strategic collaborations, oversaw the coordination of AWP’s volunteer program, and acted as the staff advisor to AWP’s Young Adult Advisory Board (YAAB), a group of student volunteers dedicated to empowering their peers to break the cycle of dating violence. Through her work at AWP, Christina has become a dedicated and passionate advocate for social justice and social change. She has also learned the value of true collaboration and partnership, and feels most alive when she is building relationships and making connections. In her free time, she loves spending time with friends and family, cooking (ok, baking), reading, running, travelling, crafting, and photography. And peanut butter.

Community Service: Christina has been volunteering with her mom for as long as she can remember – at local senior centers, at the local library, at various Girl Scout events. During her time at Penn State, she held several leadership positions with Gamma Sigma Sigma, a non-selective community service sorority, as well as with the Penn State Dance MaraTHON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. Since then, she has continued to be engaged in community efforts, as a Volunteer Sexual Assault Counselor on the hotline at Bucks County’s Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) and now as a Prevention Project volunteer at A Woman’s Place (AWP) of Bucks County.
