Christina Hildebrand


Christina Hildebrand is the founder and President of A Voice for Choice, Inc. and A Voice for Choice Advocacy, Inc. She is a market researcher with a degree in Statistics and modeling. Christina owns a Market Research firm which conducts research for many Silicon Valley companies. She also owns a Weston A Price based food delivery service in the San Francisco Bay area. Over the past 10 years she has conducted over 10,000 hours of research on vaccines, including consulting with many leading vaccine researchers, in a quest to understand the reality rather than the hype of vaccines. Christina had the idea for A Voice for Choice quite a few years ago, but did not have the time to start it, given her two other businesses. However, in 2015, in response to SB277 (the school vaccine mandate law in California), Christina felt that she needed to put the non-profit onto paper and founded A Voice for Choice Advocacy, Inc. This allowed the non-profit to hire a lobbyist in Sacramento, with whom Christina spent every Monday-Wednesday during the legislative session with lobbying against SB277 and SB792 (the child care employee vaccine mandate bill). Christina then recognized in order to further her mission of ensuring all have informed choice and transparency in what goes into their body, she needed to found a tax-exempt non-profit in order to effectively educate and fundraise for those education purposes.  Christina coordinates with the A Voice for Choice team to determine what educative events and projects will be supported.

Candyce Estave is the Educational Outreach Coordinator and Online Media Director for AutismOne and an advocate and activist for children. At the age of 4, her son was diagnosed with autism, and Candyce sought help from the Autism Society of Santa Barbara (ASASB).

From the day she attended her first support group meeting, she vowed to help other families who were facing the same difficulty she had with locating and obtaining autism services.

In short order, Candyce became ASASB’s North County Coordinator, regularly hosting support group meetings in her home, scheduling parent trainings, and building a network of supportive professionals. She organized ASASB’s North County Autism Awareness Fair from 2008-2012.

In 2009, Candyce was appointed to the Board of Autism Society of Santa Barbara. Candyce is a member of Altrusa International, Inc. of the Central Coast, serving on their board of directors, and she also served on the foundation board. She volunteers directing families in the way of advocacy for services in Santa Maria, CA, and throughout Northern Santa Barbara County.


From 2010-2013, Candyce served on the Board of Directors for an anti-bullying non-profit, also tutoring children in the classroom, where she quickly realized that 50% of children were sick, on pharmaceuticals, and something had to be done.
