Cristianna Turvey: Speech Language Pathology Assistant

Cristi was raised right here, in lovely Oceanside, California. She graduated from Biola University in 2011, with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders. Eager to start her career in the field of speech and language she completed her Speech and Language Pathology Assistant Fieldwork Program through California State University, Northridge. Cristi has experience working in the clinical setting, where her focus was primarily on early intervention for young children. Joining the Bella Mente staff in 2013 has opened the doors for her to live out her passion: helping to better students and assist them in achieving their goals. In her free time, you can find her teaching workout classes, running, going to the beach with her husband, and drinking some sort of liquid vegetable!
