Christine Rigby Bio


Christine is a recent graduate of the University of Central Florida, where she got her preparedness-for-life training in Cardiopulmonary Sciences. Promptly afterwards, she headed west alone with only a bicycle and her preparedness-for-life certificate, but ended up traveling all over the country and, simultaneously, the human condition. Upon the eventual return to her homeland, she was excited to find the opportunity to work with the Group Against Smog and Pollution by way of the SCA, and did not even unpack her possessions before flying up to Pittsburgh to do just that. Her greatest enduring mission is to make people think about those things they cannot necessarily see with their eyes, resolving to use whatever equipment necessary for the metaphorical playing field. The current playing field is the problem of air quality; the current equipment, her working knowledge of the cardiac and respiratory systems. One day, Christine hopes that it won’t be a stretch for anyone to connect physical actions with their global and intrapersonal significance.
