Christina Kohl-Merklin

Christina was born in New Jersey and moved to Florida with her parents in her early teens. Prior to the move, her family would vacation in Daytona Beach and, later, in New Smyrna Beach. Christina received her bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. She also attended Daytona State College.

After college, Christina’s career path took a variety of twists – with work in communications, accounting and administrative positions – before finally interviewing with David Holland in 2006.

Christina and her husband like to travel, especially to the mountains. They are both “dog people” and currently have a Papillion and a rescued Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. With a passion for photography and a soft spot in her heart for abused animals, Christina has volunteered her photography services to local rescue organizations. In her free time, she enjoys abstract painting in acrylics.
