Christina got her first byline in high school, writing a monthly column for the esteemed Manotick Messenger. Since then, she’s been creating copy for everything from newsletters, annual reports, and websites to parenting magazines and frozen lasagna packaging. A self-described bookworm and grammar nerd, Christina translated her degree in English Literature into a viable career through additional professional writing and editing courses. As an account manager in both advertising and public relations firms, she worked with senior level staff to develop media and communications plans and a variety of publications. She later moved in-house to work as a Communications Specialist at Children’s & Women’s Health Centre and Manager of Communications for BC Women’s Hospital Foundation.
After her children were born, Christina became an independent communications consultant, working on projects in the hospitality and not-for-profit sectors. Her four-year volunteer labour of love resulted in one of the Vancouver School Board’s first Outdoor Classrooms. When not walking her dog or hanging out with her family, Christina might be spotted stand up paddle boarding, Nordic skiing, playing the flute, or scouting kitchen stores for the latest gadget.
Best advice from mom: 1. Always give back to your community. 2. Yellow and purple only go together at Easter.
