- Mrs. Christina Goebel,
Advocacy Projects Manager | Virtual Executive Assistant
Before working with Sign Shares, Christina worked at the Texas State Independent Living Council, as a Project Specialist, Outreach and Education, and as a Conference Coordinator for the Texas Statewide Independent Living Conferences from 2013 - 2015. The annual, cross-disability conference brought individuals with disabilities and professionals together for three days to enjoy educational sessions and exhibits. At the Texas SILC, Goebel doubled outreach so that participation grew from 50 to more than 100 businesses and organizations represented by attendees. She was the editor of the Texas SILC’s “Good Information” newsletter, a cross-disability news publication that grew from 200 to 600 statewide subscribers. Before that, Goebel taught English for 14 years to students in grades 6-12th at both National Blue Ribbon and inner city schools in Austin and Miami, FL. During her spare time, Goebel has worked with Blind Ministry, people who are homeless, Habitat for Humanity, educated adults so they could pass their G.E.D. or learn English as a second language, produced and edited a literary e-zine, and taught students to paint with acrylics. She has a bachelor’s in Secondary English Education from Florida International University and a master’s in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin. Goebel has severe/profound hearing loss, wears bilateral hearing aids, and is the mother of a son who is also Hard of Hearing and has a bachelor’s in Digital Animation. She advocates for doing the “right thing,” whether required by law (usually), or not.
