Christina is a seasoned organizer and researcher turned visual communicator and designer. From movement wins to data visualization, turning a story into something intuitive, creative, and resonant is something she is forever thinking about. She has been involved with Real Food Media since our earliest days, ushering Food MythBusters and the Real Food Films contest into the multi-faceted communications organization it is today. Christina has grown the partnerships aspect of our work based on a commitment to collaborative processes, bringing 17 years experience convening networks that bridge community organizations, public service agencies, and institutional partners to develop strategies grounded in shared priorities. She leads the design and visual communications strategy embedded in our work and is active in supporting Good Food Purchasing national campaign strategy and coalition accompaniment, providing regular support to local coalitions. She holds an MPA in Public & Nonprofit Policy from NYU Wagner. A Virgo through and through (with the spreadsheets to prove it), Christina is based near Chicago and can be found instigating kitchen dance parties with her two kids fueled by that *extra* dose of chaos especially reserved for parents living with young kids in a pandemic.
