Khristina is a rock-climbing fanatic, writer, podcaster, and environmental activist. She studied Cultural Anthropology in college, but discovered her true passions to be outdoor recreation, storytelling, and environmentalism in the last couple of years.

Since discovering these passions, Khristina has thrown herself into a number of different related projects, organizations, and movements. Most prominently, joining the youth led, climate justice organization Sunrise Movement, completing the Nature for All Leadership Academy, getting her California Master Naturalist certification, producing a Podcast (the Sunrise LA Podcast), and joining the leadership team of the women’s employee resource group at REI.

In addition to the passions mentioned above, Khristina cares deeply about diversifying the outdoors. With her travels, outdoor recreation, and social media she hopes to inspire other women of color to get outside as much as they can, and to try new things. She’s excited to bring all of her passions and expertise to the NPCA Los Angeles Young Leaders Council.
