Christina fell in love with Conscious Capitalism after hearing John Mackey of Whole Foods and Co-Founder and Co-Author of Conscious Capitalism speak on November 30, 2016 in Kansas City at the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program’s annual retreat. John shared some of his hard-earned wisdom from his own journey toward building a culture based on love, community, and purpose. This concept has been Christina’s life work and as she became aware of the Conscious Capitalism community she knew she needed to learn more. After reading Conscious Capitalism and attending the April 2017 Conscious Capitalism conference, both Ron Hill and Christina resolved to found a local Kansas City chapter, which they launched on November 1st, 2017 with six founding members.
Christina’s passion for Conscious Capitalism and the belief that companies can and should be a force for good has manifested itself in every aspect of her life. As Chief Operations Development Officer at Redemption Plus, Christina is responsible for developing and executing the internal operational strategies that reinforce and support Redemption Plus’s overall culture, core values, behaviors, and strategic growth plans. As an experienced business owner, coach and consultant, her unique and well-rounded business acumen has proved invaluable, in driving the success of Redemption Plus, while building a partnership culture. Christina has nearly 20 years of non-profit board, committee and event planning experience. Christina has two fur-baby “French Bulldogs” Fiona and Brutus that keep her busy and entertained. She loves cooking, traveling all over the world and the US, overlanding, gardening, reading, music, seeing bands, going for hikes and is always up for a great adventure, especially if it is outdoors.
