With an M.S. in marine and estuarine science from Western Washington University, Cristina has maintained a professional focus on marine science and environmental education. Prior to joining the Land Trust, she worked as an environmental educator with the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education in Philadelphia, and Nature’s Classroom Institute at their Texas, Florida, Wisconsin, and California locations. A native of the central California region, Cristina has lived in and explored Western Washington on and off for the past 10 years. In the role of Office and Preserve Assistant, she splits her time between administrative support at our Uptown Port Townsend and stewardship support on our nature preserves, and she’s excited to be able to work to promote community environmental education and conservation with Jefferson Land Trust. During her free time, you may spot Cristina cycling around the area on her trusty 1980s Trek road bike.
