Meet The Team

Christina Hawkins, Founder

Since 1999, Christina has been designing and building exceptional websites. With many years of experience in creating thousands of websites, she understands the need for continuing education in her field and, therefore, is constantly learning and teaching others about internet marketing and digital processes. Prior to establishing GlobalSpex, Christina worked for the Defense Department and, later, in the financial industry as an analyst and then in IT.

With each new customer and each new project, Christina has learned so much from stepping into various roles as developer, designer, IT, marketing analyst, coach and more. Each role has helped her hone her digital marketing and graphic design skills so that she can help entrepreneurs who have a voice but need assistance in getting their message out to their target audience in the right way.

In addition to her ability as a webmaster, Christina serves as a coach and mentor to digital marketing freelancers, helping them grow their businesses. She is also a sponsor and co-leader of Houston's WordPress Meetup.
