Christie joined the A Rocha Canada team as Vice President, Advancement, in January 2016, but has been a friend of the organization since 2001 when she took a class at Regent College with Peter and Miranda Harris, founders of A Rocha. She has over ten years of experience in fundraising, mixed with a personal interest in food systems and a healthy dose of creation-care theology gained at Regent College. Christie lives in South Surrey with her filmmaker husband and their three little girls.
