Christa joined NPCA as an intern in 2005 to gain exposure to natural resource policy. Today she focuses on air quality, landscape, and water issues on a national level.

Christa graduated with a Master’s Degree from Michigan Technological University’s School of Forest Resources & Environmental Science. This prepared her for the transition to work on national park issues and the challenges and threats they face. Christa has led NPCA’s previous Green Team; and works today on outreach and paralegal efforts, research, and mapping for NPCA’s Conservation Programs. After nearly seven years residing in Washington, DC, Christa moved to Colorado where her personal time is spent being involved with and supporting humane societies, veteran’s affairs organizations, theater/fine arts, outdoor activities, and paleontology!
