Christine has been with YECA for 3 years. She first started 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 is studying sustainability at the Harvard Extension School. She hopes to one day work in higher education sustainability so she can combine her passions for tangible environmental action with student mentorship. In her free time, Christine enjoys cooking, hammocking, and getting outdoors.
