Meet Christina Shapalis

Christina Shapalis is a client partner at Whitman Partners. Her past experiences range from zoology to managing a growing craft distillery retail experience. Within her role at House Spirits Distillery, she substantially grew the event and outreach program, while improving operations and vendor relations overall. The ever-evolving scene within the craft distilling world allowed Christina to further develop her critical thinking and people skills to the exceptional level they are today.
Born in Natick, Massachusetts, Christina and her family relocated to Northern Virginia when she was 5 years old. She spent her formative years there, graduating Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2009 with a BS in general science and a media studies minor. After college, she traveled the United States extensively before deciding to move to Portland in 2010. She thoroughly enjoys hiking, swimming, traveling, and all things involving animals.
