She is most proud of being a part of the team that developed the Move Up Prince George population attraction campaign and of developing a Young Professionals of Prince George Network to assist employers in retaining staff they recruit to the city and new residents in making connections. Christina is excited to have the chance to support economic growth across the Cariboo region in her new role.
She received her Ec.D. designation from the Economic Development Association of Canada in 2021 and holds a Bachelor of Arts, English Literature from the University of Northern British Columbia, a Diploma in Public Relations from the University of Victoria, and a Diploma, Broadcast and Media Communications, Journalism from the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
