christianChristian received her high school diploma from Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington High School in 1986. Today she is a successful Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist in private practice, Oliva’s Speech Therapy LLC. She received her Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas. Christian says she “feels incredibly fortunate to have a loving, healthy family and a career that enables me to help young children communicate with their loved ones. I have no doubt that my career and life today are a direct result of the opportunities the Margaret Hudson Program gave me to earn my high school diploma as a teen parent.” She adds, “To this day, I give the MHP credit for helping me develop valuable parenting skills while I juggled all the emotional, social and financial issues that come with the almost immediate transition from childhood to adulthood.”
