Dr. Christopher Leo
Associate Professor
College of Business Administration
University of Central Florida

My name is Dr. Christopher Leo and I currently serve in UCF's College of Business as an Associate Lecturer. Chrissy Cruz came on board about two years ago and is our program's designated Career Coach; and let me just say how incredibly thankful I am to have her on the team! Her levels of engagement with our students, both in and out of the office, have been off the charts! She attends our registered student organization's meetings regularly, participates in our faculty meetings and meets with our students to discuss everything from professional advice and academic guidance to helping them polish their resumes! Her dedication to our department and her personal standards of excellence are true testaments of her unwavering commitment to the education process. She has high levels of emotional intelligence, strong communication skills and the ability to motivate and inspire those around her. Chrissy is such a joy to be around and will continue to excel in her professional endeavors.

Dr. Christine Hanlon
Senior Lecturer
Nicholson School of Communication and Media
University of Central Florida

Chrissy's enthusiasm is stellar! She creates faculty development workshops that are based on creative technologies (like Adobe Creative Cloud) and is willing to work individually with faculty to help them to improve the quality of their teaching and course design. As an Instructional Specialist at the UCF Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning,

 

Chrissy developed "Teaching and Learning Days," and led "Technology Tuesday" sessions that introduced new technologies to faculty members. These were fantastic opportunities for faculty to begin integrating new technologies in their courses.

Mr. Matthew Dombrowski
Associate Professor
Emerging Media

I have had the distinct pleasure to work with Chrissy at the University of Central Florida on a variety of pedagogical projects involving creativity and visual storytelling. Chrissy fuses strong creativity and design skill using Adobe tools in the classroom to amplify creative outcomes.

Chrissy brings excitement, passion, and unmatched positive energy to all the projects she touches. We are really fortunate to have her at UCF at this time. I look forward to collaborating with her for many more years to come!
