Christine and I have a connection as we have both worked in forest policy and communications roles. She gives us professional insight from her role in with EACOM Timber Corporations, one of Canada’s largest softwood lumber producers.
Her most valuable tip: " Don’t be afraid to share your perspective at school/work, or your story on social media. If you keep it positive and respectful, then you can say what’s on your mind."
