A Colorado native; she grew up on the rural western slope, where she continues to reside. Living in an area rich in natural resources ignited her passion for the outdoors and natural resource management. She holds a BS in Environmental Science & Technology with a minor in Geographic Information Systems. In addition, she earned a Master's degree in Environmental Policy and Management from the University of Denver. Christina has worked in the natural resources field for over 6 years. During her time off, she enjoys adventure, hiking, summiting mountains, backpacking, soaking in hot springs (especially those off the beaten path), and photography. Most of her time outdoors is spent in the Rocky Mountains, but she has also recently started high pointing in other states, completing 3 in 2016. Next on her list is the highest mountain in Utah - Kings Peak. Through her adventures, she hopes to inspire others to get outside and explore the world.
