Christina Frasher, Teaching Consultant
Christina Frasher
Teaching Consultant

Christina is grateful to return to her alma mater to support faculty in their teaching needs. Pitt is a family affair for Christina as she was inspired to attend Pitt to finish the degree her grandfather was unable to complete and later enjoyed watching her mother graduate from the doctoral nursing program. In addition to her BA in English Literature and Religious Studies, Christina has a MA in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and a PhD in Counselor Education & Supervision from Duquesne University. Her dissertation research focused on faculty experiences of utilizing Contemplative Pedagogy in their teaching and she enjoys brainstorming contemplative teaching activities with faculty.

Before joining the Teaching Center, she was at Duquesne’s Center for Teaching Excellence where she primarily supported graduate student teachers and led offerings in contemplative pedagogy and mental health and student learning. Her previous professional experience includes over 10 years in the mental health field working with children and veterans and she has earned NCC, RYT, and BSL designations. She is an adjunct faculty member at Point Park University and continues to draw from her extensive teaching experience to support faculty. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and leading and engaging in contemplative practices.
