Christina is a joint MEM/MBA student at Yale's School of the Environment and School of Management, focusing on business solutions to climate change. She is especially interested in sustainable tourism as a conduit for wildlife conservation in marine ecosystems.

Prior to Yale, she spent five years in DC working for Deloitte's public sector consulting practice helping federal agencies tackle their greatest innovation challenges; most recently, she managed a $10M internal investment budget to launch the firm's integrated portfolio of climate services that accelerate government climate action. She holds a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she majored in Global Studies and Political Science.

She spends her free time (and her paychecks) on food and travel. From gentoo penguins in Argentine Patagonia to humpback whales in French Polynesia, Christina's love of wildlife takes her to all corners of the earth and under the sea.
