My Bio

Christina is a serial entrepreneur from Los Angeles, California. At the age of 23, with a seed fund of $60,000, she co-founded and began serving as CEO of her first startup, Kaiman® Tool (“Kaiman®”). She expanded the company to a multimillion-dollar enterprise in L.A. within three years. Under her leadership, Kaiman® became one of the leading private-label manufacturers of automotive tools and equipment. Its products are distributed to major retail chain stores such as Harbor Freight Tools, AutoZone, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Canadian Tires. One of their signature product series, the Pittsburgh® Jacks, grossed over $26 million in revenue over the years. Prior to launching Kaiman® and upon graduating from USC, Christina joined Walgreens, which operates the second-largest pharmacy store chain in the U.S., where she managed over 30 employees across stores in the L.A. region.

Upon raising a seed fund of $500,000, Christina launched her second startup, Cathy Logistics (“CLI”), which provides a full line of shipping and packaging-related services to not only traditional manufacturers and importers like Kaiman®, but also various rapidly growing e-commerce suppliers. She co-founded and served as the CEO of CLI. Because the then-CFO appointed by her former partner was a foreigner who wasn’t familiar with finance and accounting in the U.S., Christina also conducted the majority of the CFO duties at the company. Despite high operational costs at its approximately 45,000-sf facility in a prime location in L.A., CLI attained the facility's full capacity after just two months of operations, and achieved profit within a mere seven months. CLI was acquired later on, and continues operating under new ownership with 15 locations nationwide. Four years after her exit, when she was pregnant with her first child, Christina was offered to return and serve as the CEO at the headquarters of CLI in L.A. Due to her obligations to her beloved family and in support of her husband’s local law firm, Christina decided to move with her husband near his law firm in Redwood City, and postpone most opportunities outside of Silicon Valley.

Asset Management
Since in her twenties, Christina has been helping family and close friends manage investment portfolios that are diversified and allocated in various asset classes and sectors, including Real Estate, Stocks, Exchange-traded funds, Bonds, Retirement funds, 529 plans, and crypto.

Commercial Real Estate
As a licensed real estate broker in California (#02011518), Christina specializes in commercial investment real estate transactions and business acquisitions, as well as property management.

Christina has participated in more than $300 million in transactions representing investors bidding on and selling properties, such as: a 161-key hotel in Pasadena, California; an approximately 1,423,000-sf industrial building in Rancho Cucamonga, California; an approximately 68-acre parcel of land in Lake Elsinore, California; and more. Christina has a strong understanding of market conditions that impact her client’s assets, and she can provide great value in making real estate decisions with her advanced analytical skills. Her background in entrepreneurship, industrial ventures and logistics, property management, and leasing and sales, brings a well-informed, strategic approach to property owners and investors looking to achieve the greatest value while minimizing risk.

In her spare time and because of her commitment to giving back to the community, Christina actively volunteers. She was serving as CFO across multiple non-profit organizations in L.A., such as the various Chambers of Commerce, until relocating to the Bay Area in 2023. Christina has continued serving as a community manager of multiple associations at the University of Southern California, including the USC Marshall Alumni Association - Bay Area chapter, USC Alumni Entrepreneurs Network, and the USC Reunion Weekend.

Christina achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Business with a concentration in Entrepreneurship from the top-ranked program at the University of Southern California-- one year earlier than the typical degree timeline. English is her fourth language. During her senior year, she became the first assistant to the professor of Business Law, Dr. Henry Cheeseman, as an undergraduate student. Further, while managing two of her startups and remaining at the top of her class, Christina completed all the required courses from the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) program within one year-- in addition to graduating the Innovation and Entrepreneurship program from the Stanford Graduate School of Business within two years.

Raised in a business family, Christina started attending conference meetings with her parents when she was in elementary school, and she developed strong social skills among a community of high-net worth entrepreneurs when she was only a child. Her mother moved to Los Angeles from Hangzhou in the 1990's to expand their family business. Christina moved to Los Angeles from Hangzhou later on to continue her education. She is married to Andrew Watters, who is a successful trial attorney and operates his own law firm. They have an amazing daughter together, Jennifer C. Watters. Christina is currently serving as the CFO of her husband’s law firm. Her interests include investment, travel, fashion, golf, and piano.

Christina was born in Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang, China. Marco Polo described Hangzhou as "The City of Heaven, the most beautiful and magnificent in the world." Hangzhou has been repeatedly rated as the best commercial city in mainland China by Forbes and as the Chinese city with the “highest growth potential” by the Economist Intelligence Unit. Hangzhou is also known as the "Silicon Valley" of China. It is home to the headquarters of large global tech companies such as the Alibaba Group, Ant Group, and NetEase.
