Deployment Readiness Coordinator



On behalf of the Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Melina Mesta, and the rest of the Family Readiness Command Team, I would like to welcome you to 7th Engineer Support Battalion. My name is Christina Higgins, and I am honored to serve the Marines, Sailors, and their families as this Battalion’s Deployment Readiness Coordinator (DRC).

There are many challenges in today’s Marine Corps, and adapting to a military lifestyle can be rewarding as well as stressful. As the DRC, my goal is to support the Family Readiness Program that connects our families and provides education and access to numerous resources that will support you in the exciting days ahead. As the DRC it is my job to ensure I promote wellness and resiliency among our service members and their families. This will be implemented via regular communication, including emails and social media updates, regarding the latest news and services, classes, and social events. Through these opportunities we will build a strong sense of community and provide the maximum benefit to all members of the 7th ESB family. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via phone/email/text, or stop by my office for a chat or some coffee.

Also, we are always seeking family members who wish to volunteer in support of our Marines and Sailors and hope that you will consider being a part of our Family Readiness Team. If you would like to get involved or have any questions, please feel free to call me at (760) 725-6101.

 Again, welcome to the 7th Engineer Support Battalion family. I look forward to serving you in the future.


Warm Regards,

Christina Higgins
