Welcome to the Inventive team, Christina!

We are so excited to announce that Christina Harder has joined inventive as a Senior Web Developer!

Christina graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2003 with a BS in Architectural Engineering. However, due to her love of details and operations, she skipped being an engineer and went straight to entrepreneurship, teaming up with her ex-husband on a series of businesses. The first was a company that invented a timer for standardized tests, second was a software development company, and one was a software/mobile app company. Over the years Christina worked on web projects for those companies, as well as ran the finance and operations for each of the businesses.

Eventually she branched off and started a new business with a colleague called Unified Finance Organization (UFO) in 2014. UFO specializes in bookkeeping and finance services for small businesses. Then in 2016, Christina decided to switch focus and dedicate herself full-time to web development. She most recently worked as a web developer for a local advertising agency Lee Tilford Agency. Christina left LTA last month, and ended up finding a new family at Inventive. Her specialties include WordPress, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL databases, and spreadsheets.

Christina met her husband Kevin in 2014, and they married in 2017. They live in SW Austin with their 6 children: daughters Jillian (almost 14), Emma (age 13), Cadence (almost 12), Haley (age 10), and twin boys Finn and Axton (16 months). Hobbies include chasing twins and ferrying kids to their activities. In the rare moments of actual free time, she likes to be outdoors or cook or paint, and as the twins grow, travel more. Christina and Kevin are being brave and taking the whole family to New Zealand in March to see her brother and sister-in-law. Fun fact: Christina’s husband Kevin used to work with James and Andy around 10 years ago.

Welcome to the team Christina we are so excited to have you!
