Tina Cannon Christianson
My name is Tina Christianson. I was born in Gardena, Calif and moved to Gardnerville, Nevada in 1996. I relocated to Reno in 2002 where I currently live. My mom is full blooded Portuguese and was born and raised in Maui.
I grew up in a home that had so much aloha that it flooded the hearts of everyone who knew us. I also was fortunate enough to grow up next door to a Samoan family from which I learned all the customs and and developed a love for the Samoan culture. Our two families blended together to make one big ohana and we are all still close to this day.
Since moving from Gardena, I have missed the feeling of aloha, ohana, and just the love of life that is felt in all multicultural islanders. I feel so blessed to have found my new ohana here in Reno and to be a part of sharing and teaching the spirit of aloha with everyone.
