Christina is proud to call Edmonton home and loves the incredible diversity of the Mill Woods community where she lives and has served as MLA since 2015. She is also the NDP Critic for Labour & Immigration and serves as a Deputy House Leader.
Named Minister of Labour and Minister Responsible for Democratic Renewal in 2016, Christina has a proven track record of making life more affordable for Albertans. She was instrumental in the introduction of the $15 minimum wage because she believes that every hard working Albertan deserves to be paid fairly. She has had the backs of everyday working Albertans by passionately advocating for healthy work environments where all workers can do their jobs safely.
Active in her Mill Woods community of Edmonton, she served on the Edmonton Transit System Advisory Board for six years, three of those as the Chair. She also volunteered as a Distress Line operator with The Support Network. In 2007 Christina was recognized for her work, receiving a YWCA of Edmonton Woman of Distinction award.
Prior to being elected, Christina worked as a senior consultant with a local software development consulting firm and has experience working as a software developer and instructor.
Christina holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the Concordia University of Edmonton, and a diploma in software development.
