When Christina Baker set out to choose a venue for higher education, she selected Tiffin University because of its family-like atmosphere. After earning two degrees, she has come to value much more about the institution.
Baker began her TU experience in 2007 in the School of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences. She also played softball for the University during her four years as an undergraduate. She recalled that her favorite memories were made with her teammates during their spring trips to Florida.
In 2011, Baker completed her bachelor’s degree with an emphasis in forensic psychology. Two years later she earned a Master of Science in Criminal Justice.
“Tiffin provided me with great networking opportunities,” Baker said.
“Also, obtaining an education from instructors with real-life experiences has been one of most valued aspects I gained from TU.”
Baker moved to Cincinnati in 2012 to work for the Hamilton County Job and Family Services. Two years later, she accepted a position as a probation officer with the Hamilton County Juvenile Probation Department.
Her advice for TU students is simple: “Use your network opportunities,” she emphasized. “Take advantage of all opportunities.”
Baker still enjoys a good game of softball. In fact, she met her fiancé, Vince Grady, while playing in a co-ed league. Mr. Grady is a sergeant first class in the Army National Guard Special Forces. This past April, the couple became parents to a daughter, Makena Jade.
