IDEATION / ENTREPRENEURSHIP
CHRISTINA's BIG IDEA: THE NEST
Christina always dreamed of a special restaurant, event, and play space that could become an epicenter for all things that women desire - connection, support, and meaningful experiences. The Nest, which was the manifestation of her big idea, remains her greatest professional achievement to date; and the experience of ideating, building, marketing, operating, and then unfortunately losing her big dream has defined her career more than any other creative endeavor ever could.
One of Christina's strongest beliefs is that failure teaches us far more than success ever could, and that it is far greater to have loved and to have lost than to never have loved at all. The Nest was one of Christina's greatest loves and her gift to the community, and she hopes that in scrolling through the photos of what it was, you will be left with the feeling of how much love The Nest brought to so many who got to experience it.
