Christina Hillsberg is a Stay at Home Mom, writer, and fitness instructor. She worked as a CIA spy throughout her twenties, frequently traveling to Africa as one of the intelligence community’s fluent Swahili speakers. After nearly 10 years, she traded in her adventurous globetrotting lifestyle for a new adventure as a mother during which time she discovered her love for writing and fitness. She is the founder and owner of Mama Be Strong, a distinctive, upbeat strength and conditioning workout for mothers in the Snoqualmie Valley of Washington State. Christina and her husband Ryan, also a former spy, live just outside of Seattle, Washington with her three stepchildren, their three-year-old son, one-year-old daughter, and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
