Kristina is a passionate educator who is dedicated to community building, sharing stories, and supporting people (especially young people) to contribute and connect! She is a white Settler and first generation Irish-Canadian from Northern Alberta - Dene and Cree Territory under Treaty 6 - and has made a home in Lethbridge, in Blackfoot Territory under Treaty 7, over the last 10 years. While she desperately misses her northern trees, she loves the connection to the land and people she has built under Southern Alberta's "big sky."
Kristina participates with many community organizations and collectives working in areas such as youth, feminism, and food security, while saving time to enjoy her bicycle and sunflowers. Some of her notable work in recent years has including serving as Acting Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club, founding a community garden in her neighbourhood, running for Public School Trustee, and making really delicious vegan cheese. 

She has big dreams of growing a front yard full of vegetables and contributing to increased community capacity and action for positive social change.
