Christina’s Alaskan story is like many that came before her. After moving to Homer, AK from Brooklyn, NY in 2011 the beauty of the landscape and incredible people she met turned a summer-long stay into a lifelong home. Alaska offered her a place where her talents in web design and marketing were valued and appreciated.
Serving on a number of boards including the Bunnell Street Art Center and Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum allowed her to understand the importance of the nonprofit sector and its ability to impact communities now and in the future. Christina began working fulltime in nonprofit at the Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation in Juneau in 2014.
As the Communication Specialist at ACF, Christina supports the vital work being done to better Alaska. She is inspired daily by both the thoughtfulness that donors exhibit in their gifts and the incredible passion and dedication that nonprofits show in supporting our community and its members. Christina notes, “It is a privilege to use my artistic talents and creativity to make the world a better place. I aspire to offer each place I work and volunteer the ability to communicate and accomplish their mission through visual content marketing, cohesive branding and strong community partners.”
Christina studied fine art and art history at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Reed College in Portland, OR. When not working at ACF Christina is the Executive Director of the Anchorage Estate Planning Council, volunteers as an art teacher at Covenant House, provides discounted design services to nonprofits, and has a full-time art practice creating fine art for galleries across the state.
