Christina Rock serves as Verum’s Senior Copywriter. Before joining, she worked in a number of fields, most recently as a Geopolitical Analyst at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Her passion for storytelling helps her breathe life into our clients’ narratives with skill, understanding, and nuance. Her work has won awards and served a diverse set of clients, from the US government to Rolling Stone magazine. Christina prides herself on being equal parts grit and poise, and has worked as a writer, waitress, researcher, club promoter, pony wrangler, Intelligence Analyst and human rights advocate. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Illinois but most of her skills were honed through trial, error, and bottomless curiosity. She has travelled in some 30 countries but calls Cape Town, South Africa home, where she lives with her partner, dogs, and feral children.
