About Christina

Christina has been writing and telling stories since she was a child, so when she chose to go to Wilfrid Laurier University to study English and journalism, no one was surprised. While in school, Christina was the

  • President of the Journalism Guild,

  • The editor-in-chief of the campus’s yearbook The Carnegie,

  • The managing editor of the campus’s undergraduate academic journal Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections, and

  • The senior facilitated study group leader for Laurier Brantford’s Learning Service Centre.

These roles helped her hone her eye for detail, improve her editing acumen, and learn how to effectively balance multiple projects.


Since graduating in 2013 she has worked as a contract multimedia journalist for the Pembroke Daily Observer, a parenting writer for Childhood 101, Milk & Heels, and Baby Gaga, and a volunteer writer for the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre. 


When she isn't writing, she can often be found doodling or making crafts with her children, belly dancing, watching action and adventure movies, or playing D&D with friends.
