Christina Schatz manages the financial lives of wealthy families and small businesses as a Financial Advisor. More confidante than Financial Advisor, she enjoys wearing many hats and is often involved in her clients’ personal as well as fiscal matters. As the wife of an FDNY Lieutenant and mother of five, she has mastered the art of multi-tasking under pressure. An activist at heart, Christina derives her strength and passion from a desire to tackle complicated issues. During an acceptance speech for a volunteer award she received, Christina stated that she does not believe you have the right to complain about a problem unless you are willing to be part of the solution. The seed of activism was planted while at the University of Maryland where she worked for Citizen Action, a grassroots lobbying organization. Upon returning to New York after graduation, she volunteered at Women Helping Women, a shelter for battered women and their children. Christina later joined the board and continued to advise the organization for ten years. As a personal advisor at a large firm for more than 18 years, Christina is in a unique position to understand the entrepreneur mindset and the constraints of a regulatory corporate structure. Her experience and balanced approach come together to offer objective, macro analysis.
