Christina Mastroeni Veloso is a born and bred Northern New Jersian. So much so, that if she's giving you directions, it'll likely be based on the nearest parkway exit. Also, her love for Jersey and Taylor Ham knows no bounds. In addition to writing for The Hoboken Girl, Christina is currently a Business Writing Professor at Kean University. Prior to this experience, she held marketing positions for other medium-sized companies/institutions in North Jersey. Christina has experience running her own blog, performing stand-up comedy, and co-hosting a weekly podcast (Two Girls Watch TV) and Youtube Channel (Two Girls Drink Beer). When she's not wearing all these hats, Christina loves a good cup of coffee, enjoys working out, and practices Brazilian jiu-jitsu when she can.
