She was appointed at the age of 22 to replace Todd Snitchler while still in college.[3] Hagan was previously a high school tennis coach while working her way through school.[4] Her father John Hagan represented the district from 2000 to 2008.[3] Christina M. Hagan is the youngest female to have ever served in Ohio's legislature and is currently the second youngest Republican female state representative in the nation. When she was 23 years old, Hagan beat her opponent by approx. 9,949 votes, keeping her seat in House District 50. She graduated from Malone University, making her the first in her family to obtain a college degree.

Hagan serves Ohio's House District 50, while working as a waitress and a HVAC Apprentice for Hagan Heating and Plumbing, a family owned and operated business in Marlboro Township. In the past she has been appointed to her first leadership role in the Ohio House of Representatives as the Vice-Chair of the Higher Education Study Committee. She is currently a member of several other legislative committees including Public Utilities, Community and Family Advancement, Agriculture and Rural Development, and The Board of Regents Internship and Co-Op Advisory Board.

Outside of the realm of committee work, Representative Hagan has focused her efforts on restoring Ohio’s reputation as a national economic leader by working to create a better business climate that can sustain a strong private sector job market. She has also worked to improve government accountability, promoting responsible use of taxpayer dollars.

In 2015, Hagan was the primary sponsor of House Bill 69- the Fetal Heartbeat Bill.[5] The bill would ban all abortion in Ohio after 6 weeks, even in cases of rape and incest.[6]
