Prior to joining Sitko Bruno in 2017, Tina devoted 27 years to transforming ideas into positive, functional outcomes. After law school Tina worked for five years with an international law firm practicing commercial and real estate lending law. Tina then joined a multi-billion-dollar regional supermarket and convenience store chain and worked first as corporate counsel and then as an executive in sales and merchandising. Although Tina managed many businesses throughout her career, her most notable accomplishment was the development, launch and management of a new business with annual sales exceeding $1 billion. Tina understands commercial transactions and assists clients in structuring creative, innovative deals and contracts from both a legal and business standpoint.
In her leisure time Tina enjoys spending time with her husband, Chris, and her son, Sam. She loves sports (she’s a crazy football fan!), gardening, recreational reading, music, the beach and musical theater. Tina enjoys traveling (particularly to Hilton Head Island) and experiencing new restaurants – she’s a foodie at heart! Tina also is passionate about advocacy and educational efforts to alleviate drug and alcohol addiction, particularly in teens and young adults.
