Growing up, Christine Hill saw the outdoors as a place that was full of bugs and too much worry. But after falling in love with climbing and discovering a sense of peace through summer camp, she decided this was something worth protecting. Now splitting her time between Washington, DC and Haines, AK, Chris is an environmental lobbyist and angler who comes alive and spreads joy while out on the river. Maybe a bit of competition too if the odds are right.
