Profile Biography 
Christina Washington is an esteemed STEM Professional, Author, and Educator with a passion for helping others. In 2015, Mrs. Washington founded an education company, Young Scholars, whose mission was to improve academic performance for school aged children. Young Scholars programs initially served children ages 8-14 through educational summer camps and STEM workshops. Mrs. Washington soon realized a need for academic support services for high school students, as well as a professional development and coaching need for aspiring educators. In 2016, she added tutoring, test prep, and academic coaching services to the program offerings and renamed the company to Innovative Learning Solutions. In 2016, Mrs. Washington also authored the children's book "Ms Pearl Makes a Discovery", followed by "Ms Pearl's Garden Surprise" in 2017. Both books were written to encourage science exploration for early learners, further serving a broader audience within the community. Activity kits are available for each book so that readers may recreate the kid-friendly experiments performed within the books.

Innovative Learning Solutions has grown to be a premier provider of education consulting services. Mrs. Washington's vision and innovative efforts has helped more than 3,000 students and teachers nationwide through partnerships with youth organizations, colleges, and school districts. Mrs. Washington currently serves as the Executive Director of Innovative Learning Solutions where she is responsible for daily operations including developing new programs, curriculum design, facilitating courses, and managing community partnerships.

Prior to founding Young Scholars and Innovative Learning Solutions, Mrs. Washington had a distinguished career with experiences working in research, engineering development, and the medical industry. She received numerous awards for her efforts including Top 40 under 40 Professionals, US Army Material Command Award for Research, Clark Atlanta University Outstanding Service Award, and is a featured Physicist on the American Physical Society’s website. Mrs. Washington was also a nominee for the National Science Teacher Association's Informal Educator Award in 2017. Mrs. Washington looks forward to continuing her journey of enriching the community with quality educational STEM content and hopes that her work will inspire youth for years to come.
