Director of Strategic Partnerships
Christi is responsible for managing EFCA’s long-standing partnerships and the continued development of the Clean Energy Connection—an online directory connecting homeowners to vetted contractors providing clean energy and decarbonization services.
She brings extensive experience developing and leading visionary organizations, events, and education programs on a local, national, and international level. As the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Build It Green, she operated one of the first resource centers in the country to provide green building tools for the trades.
Christi was the Founder and CEO of West Coast Green Conference & Expo—the largest privately held conference dedicated to green innovation, which drew over 10,000 thought leaders from around the world each year, and helped shape and propel the green building movement. She served on the Board of Directors of the American Lung Association and the Association of Women in Water, Energy & Environment (AWWEE) and produced the United Nations’ World Environment Day, commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations.
Christi holds an Environmental Home Inspector Certificate from the International Institute of Building Biology, and a 50-Ton Masters Captains License with the U.S. Coast Guard. If she’s not boating along the northern CA coastline, you’ll find her hiking the John Muir Trail in the High Sierra.
