Christalene is from Moreno Valley California. She graduated from Mt. San Antonio College with an Associates in Kinesiology and then transferred as a Kinesiology/Sports Medicine major to California State University, Fullerton. She is hoping to graduate and go to medical school to become a Sports Medicine Physician.
Throughout her childhood she was involved in several extra curricular activities/sports that motivated her interest into the health science field. She was in cross country, track, cheer and dance. She was a mid-distance runner, but mostly focused on running the 800. While running track, she was also balancing being cheer captain of the high school team at Valley View High school.
As a result of being in these competitive sports, she developed several injuries that restricted her from competing. At that time in her life, it became a goal of hers to get started in a career where she can help people such as athletes. Some of her hobbies include snowboarding, traveling, working out, and spending time with family and friends.
