Meet the newest Obsidianite: Christina Babu!

Christina recently joined Obsidian after practicing the public relations trade in a number of industries – including architecture, tourism, nonprofit, music and the performing arts – both in Memphis and New York City, where she earned her master’s degree in public relations and corporate communications.

Once destined for the performance stage, Christina’s bachelor studies at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, were actually focused on music with only a minor in public relations. However, after a move to New York City and experience in event planning, it was clear that her PR skills were taking center stage. That’s when she enrolled in graduate school at New York University.

A lover of travel, this born-and-raised Memphian has visited a number of faraway places, and she’s not done yet. What’s on her bucket list? Check out the answer to that along with a few other fun facts about Christina below!
