After 24 years of working at the same financial services corporation, Christina DeOliveira came into work one morning only to discover her position was being eliminated due to budget cuts. Coming on the heels of a traumatic and heartbreaking family tragedy, Christina struggled to find her equilibrium - until she finally found the courage to confront her future and find a rich new professional life she never dreamed was possible. Thus came the inspiration to write The JOY of Losing Your Job, in which Christina shares not only her own inspiring story, but those of others who experienced the same mid-life renaissance after first being brutally terminated by a longtime employer.

In addition to authoring The JOY of Losing Your Job, Christina DeOliveira is CEO and Principal Consultant of Performance Continuum, a successful strategic management consultancy with expertise in human capital management, leadership development, creating high performance cultures, team alignment and engagement, leadership coaching, and service excellence.

She is also the founder and President of David’s Gift, a scholarship foundation dedicated to memorializing the life of her beloved brother, David, and to which proceeds from the sale of this book are donated.
