Christa Sterling
Director, Continuing Education

Christa is the Director of Continuing Education. She is a graduate of CCSU and loves working with customers to solve their problems and business needs and just talk with them. She has a background in marketing and sales and can’t believe she actually sold copiers! Bringing the business and academic community together is the best sales job of all! If you need it, we likely can help you get it!

She can be found outside in any season trying to master any activity. She loves the NY Giants and Yankees, her two cats, hanging out with friends and a good glass of wine. Maybe not in that order.
