Water Quality Field Specialist
Christa was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida and moved to Washington, New Jersey in 2011. She always had an affinity for water and fell in love with the rivers in our region, so we went back to school to pursue a degree in science. She graduated from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania in May, 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies with a focus in Stream Ecology and a minor in Geography with a focus in GIS.
Christa has interned with MWA for the past 3 1/2 years before the position of Water Quality Field Specialist was created. She is also the Research Field Specialist for Northern New Jersey and Pennsylvania with Stroud Research Center as part of the EnviroDIY sensor project in coordination with the Delaware River Watershed Initiative.
Outside of MWA, she is the Vice President of the newly formed Lehigh Valley Chapter of the Pennsylvania Native Plant Society.
