Ms. Christina spent over 10 years in the environmental consulting field, working predominantly on pre-remedial assessments on Federal and State superfund sites. She then jumped to the public sector side of the fence working as the City of Trenton’s Brownfields Coordinator and, later, as the City’s Director of the Division of Economic Development.
Currently, Ms. Christina is co-owner of Brownfield Redevelopment Solutions, Inc. (BRS), a consulting services group headquartered in New Jersey. BRS was formed in 2003 with the sole purpose of assisting the public sector with establishing sustainable and aggressive brownfield redevelopment programs. BRS has stayed true to its mission of providing resources and expertise needed to bring projects from inception to completion by addressing community revitalization challenges through redevelopment, revitalization, and resiliency planning, while safeguarding the integrity of the public trust. This is accomplished by providing services to the public sector that include funding access and grant management, environmental assessments, remediation and reuse planning, partnership building/stakeholder engagement, and other activities to facilitate the assessment, cleanup, and redevelopment of brownfield sites.
Ms. Christina holds her Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Science, with a concentration in Chemistry, from Westminster College. She is licensed in New Jersey in underground storage tank closure and subsurface evaluation. She is also a certified Economic Development Finance Professional.
