Christine first started with YECA in 2017 as a Climate Leadership Fellow, where she worked to get solar panels as her senior class gift and created educational signage for the local woods. During her time at Gordon, she also led the creation-care group Advocates for a Sustainable Future and spent a semester in New Zealand studying ecology and theology. These experiences fed her curiosity of the natural world and helped teach her how to share it with others. In 2018 she graduated with a B.S. in Biology with a double minor of Environmental Outreach and Sustainable Development. Following graduation, Christine spent two years in Maine working to help low income Mainers conserve energy and stay warm, and conducting a municipal greenhouse gas inventory.
Currently, Christine works as the Sustainability Coordinator at Williams College (Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives) while working toward a masters’ in Sustainability at Harvard Extension School. She delights in seeing students use their unique gifts to further sustainability. In her free time, Christine enjoys cooking with her trusty crock-pot, attempting to surf, and dreaming of raising a therapy dog.
