Cristina Agee

Cristina currently serves as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Salem and the Insurance Fraud Special Prosecutor for the 6th Division of Virginia State Police. Born and raised on Long Island, NY, Cristina moved to Virginia in 2012 to begin her law school career at Washington and Lee University School of Law. After graduating law school in 2015, Cristina spent one year as a fellow for Legal Services of Northern Virginia in Fairfax, where she represented victims of domestic violence in divorce, custody and visitation, and protective order proceedings. In 2016, she joined the Montgomery County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office as the VSTOP domestic violence prosecutor. She transitioned from that grant funded position to an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney position for Montgomery County where she later became the lead Juvenile and Domestic Relations (JDR) prosecutor. In 2020, she became Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Salem where she continues to specialize in JDR and sexual assault prosecutions. Cristina’s interest in public service has also led her to serve in many leadership roles for nonprofit organizations in the area, such as the Junior League of Roanoke Valley and Huddle Up Moms.


I first became familiar with CHIP through my volunteer work with the Junior League of Roanoke Valley (JLRV). CHIP has always been an outstanding community partner and we’ve had the great opportunity to fund some of their programs through the JLRV Grants. My career in public service certainly aligns with CHIP’s mission of providing every child equal access to health care and education. Without these fundamentals, we are doing a disservice to families throughout the Roanoke Valley by expecting them to succeed without support. As a mother and a community advocate, I am honored to serve on the board of this important organization.
