Hi, I’m Christina! God-fearing, loving wife, mom of two, dog mom of three.

My Story

How we began

Having spent over 20 years assisting others in managing their businesses, I discovered that my financial and operational expertise was well-suited to help other entrepreneurs. I am genuinely passionate about helping small businesses take control of their finances and reach their full potential. Within a year and a half of launching Springstead Solutions, we have successfully taken on the role of CFO for companies and have numerous clients across the country. Our goal is to continue partnering with ambitious individuals and businesses, to help them not only advance their operations but also genuinely enjoy their work.

My Story


As a resident of Kern County for many years, I take great pride in being a part of this community and have raised my family here. I am a strong supporter of giving back and am actively involved in several local non-profit organizations, serving on boards and committees such as the Kern County Builders Exchange, Leadership Bakersfield, and the Bakersfield Women’s Business Conference, among others. In addition, I obtained my MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management in 2003 and a Profit First Certification, Mastery Level in 2020.
