After finishing her B.A in Geography at McGill University, Christina returned to her hometown of Queens, New York where she worked for the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation for just shy of 3 years. She was drawn to the SCA for the opportunity to swing a pick, hike places, plant things, map things, and experience other ways of life. Before becoming a FishTracs Corps member, Christina completed a 1- year SCA Restoration Internship with the BLM’s Tucson Field Office.
These days, she finds herself surprisingly happy to be collecting data and feels lucky to get to see this country through this current program. When she’s not spending too much time staring off into the distance and thinking about things, she’s trying to get to pottery wheel back in Boise.
As for after the program, she knows most broadly that she wants to be involved in work that connects people with places. She enjoys finding patterns in data and the visual nature of GIS so perhaps using her AmeriCorps Award towards more GIS coursework would be a good plan.
