Intern Funeral Director
Christianna is an Alexandria native and graduated from
Jefferson Senior High School in 2008. After high school she moved to Denver, CO
and graduated from the University of Colorado in 2012 with a Bachelor of
Science in Biology. From 2014-2016, Christianna attended medical school at Des
Moines University in Des Moines, IA. In early 2016, her dad died unexpectedly,
causing her to reevaluate her purpose and plan in life. After a one year leave
of absence, she made the choice to become a funeral director instead of a
physician. In 2017, Christianna enrolled in the Program of Mortuary Science at the
University of Minnesota and graduated in the spring of 2018 with a Bachelor of
Science in Mortuary Science. Soon after
she joined the team at Anderson Funeral Home.
Christianna considers it a privilege to be able to live in,
and serve, the community she grew up in. Her dad’s death has allowed her to
empathize with the families she serves, particularly those that have lost a parent
at a young age, and she hopes to transform a sad event in her life into
something positive for herself and for others.
Christianna has been married to Paul Jahn since 2014. Their
two rescue dogs, Benny and Jackson, are the light of her life. In her spare
time she is an avid reader, science enthusiast, likes helping others with their
tech issues, and enjoys a good podcast in her car on the way to work.
