Christina is a Ph.D.-trained economist and data scientist with cross-disciplinary research, teaching, consulting and project management experience in diverse geographies. Her career journey through Wall Street finance, international development, and academia has led her to a passion for issues at the intersection of environmental sustainability, gender inequality, political economy, and labor equity. She believes that enabling and accelerating career transitions is key to unlocking real, bottom-up economic prosperity that can fight poverty, inflation, and instability.  


Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
