She is able to take a high level approach to the overall structure of any project and tie it to a detailed plan that can be successfully executed.

Christina is a true, fearless female leader and entrepreneur in the plant-based wellness industry. Her passion for the industry is unparalleled. How she translates this into business success through strategic thinking and relentless execution is truly something special. I am honoured to work with this spectacular business leader, and kind human!
Christina has been such a force in this industry in terms of the expertise and impact she has brought into the cannabis space in such a short amount of time. She brings an ambitiously fresh business perspective when it comes to cannabis retail, all while remaining extremely compliant and respectful to the industry. I've had the pleasure of working with her during the launch of Hobo, and am excited to have Cova be part of powering her vision with Marigolds. I am honoured to know Christina both personally and professionally, and would highly recommend her for any venture.
