Born in China, raised in New Jersey, and now residing in Brooklyn, New York, Christina Perla is the Cofounder & CEO of Makelab, a 3D printing service company.
After acquiring a friend's company with her partner, Manny, Makelab was born and Perla hasn't stopped since. In addition to running the business, she is also on the Board of Directors for the global nonprofit, Women in 3D Printing. Aside from thinking of engaging ways to activate the local NYC 3D printing community, Perla works with other Board Members to foster a diverse industry and expand the global reach of Women in 3D Printing through interviews, events, networking opportunities, and resources.
When she has free time, Perla loves to spend it with her fiancé and their dog, Milo. She enjoys a good, long, strenuous hike anywhere woodsy during the warmer months, and prefers to start every day with a good, usually challenging, workout.
