About Christina Ward

 
Christina Ward first became involved with the Gulf Coast Dementia Services in September 2015 when she was researching various educational and support groups to help with dementia issues that are facing her Mother.  She has been attending the monthly support group meetings offered by Gulf Coast Dementia Services since that time.  Christina Ward graduated from Santa Clara University in California with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art History. She then went on to pursue a Master of Arts Degree in Museum Studies from Seton Hall University in New Jersey.  Shortly after graduating, Christina moved to Indiana and accepted a position as manager of the permanent art collection for the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University.  For the next 20 years, she worked at various non-profit art institutions in New Jersey, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Alabama. Christina Ward made a decision in 2012 to change careers and return to school to pursue an education in the health care field.  She graduated in December 2015 from the Cardiac and Vascular Institute of Ultrasound in Mobile, Alabama and is both a Registered Vascular Technologist and a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer.  Christina also holds a credential as a Certified Rhythm Analysis Technician.  She is currently employed at a neurologist’s office in Mobile. Dementia has personally affected several members of Christina Ward’s family.  Her Grandmother suffered with Alzheimer’s for many years before she passed away.  And her Mother, Uncle, and husband’s Grandmother are all currently struggling with different types of dementia.  Christina’s goal is to educate herself on all forms of dementia and learn about resources and techniques so that she can be of assistance to her family members and also be of guidance to those who care for them on a daily basis. Christina Ward’s past community service include volunteering in the Cancer Center on the campus of Providence Hospital in Mobile.  She currently resides in Mobile with her husband and enjoys mountain biking with him and caring for Stormy, their newly adopted rescue cat.
