Christina Rodríguez is the President & Co-Founder of Mind & Melody, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those experiencing neurological impairments, such as Alzheimer’s, through music. Cristina is fascinated by the possibilities that come with the intersection of art and science. She has played the cello for over 10 years and graduated from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College with a degree in Biochemistry. While volunteering at a hospital when she was 14 years old, the concept behind Mind&Melody came to mind. She dreamt of making music accessible to people that would greatly benefit from it. The thought of pursuing this project felt daunting, but it turned into one of the best decisions she ever made.
