Christina is a teacher at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City.

Along with her improv partner, Late Night writer, Kevin Dorff, Christina was named one of "The 10 Funniest New Yorkers You've Never Heard Of" by New York Magazine. Their show, "Dorff and Gausas" was described as "brainy, off-the-cuff interplay that recalls the heyday of Nichols & May." Christina created the long-form show, "Let's Have a Ball", and, along with Brian Stack, assembled a cast of friends featuring some of the best improvisers in the country. She recently appeared in the pilot episode of Important Things with Demetri Martin on Comedy Central, appears regularly on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, has appeared in I Never Said That hosted by Tim Meadows, The Colbert Report, VH-1, and The Al Franken Show on Sundance Channel. Christina studied improvisation with Del Close and Charna Halpern at ImprovOlympic in Chicago where she was also a member of the IO Road Show, before moving to NYC.
