Bio

A trusts specialist with a passion for helping clients understand the decisions they’re making and why, Christina started her legal career as an in-house solicitor for New Zealand Trustee Services Limited. In joining Schnauer and Co, she’s bringing her passion for trusts and estate planning to the team.

Christina loves offering estate planning to help people protect their family assets for current and future generations – structuring trusts in a way that enables them to fulfil clients’ wishes.

Outside of work, she’s passionate about giving back – volunteering at SAFE and planting trees for Auckland Council.
