A theme throughout Christina Vo’s life has been the search for home. Losing her mother as a teenager, Christina’s upbringing was nomadic. Moving from the East Coast to small towns in the South and Midwest she learned to create, and recreate, home — a perspective which has continued to shape her passions. Christina Vo is a writer who previously worked for international organizations in Vietnam and Switzerland and also ran a floral design business in San Francisco. She currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her debut memoir, The Veil Between Two Worlds, will be released in the spring of 2023.
