Christy is a Northern California native. While attending Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, she realized she could make a career of her love of being outside. After earning a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences, she held a succession of field biologist jobs, notably monitoring endangered birds and eradicating their predators on Maui, small mammal trapping throughout Northern California, shorebird mist-netting off the coast of Oregon, and years of shorebird monitoring along California’s Central Coast for state and federal agencies as well as private entities. Immediately prior to joining Transcon, she worked as a third-party (agency) on-site environmental coordinator at a long-term oil field remediation and abandonment project. In 2010, a relocation to the Bay Area and a connection through Pacific Gas and Electric Company brought her to Transcon, and she became Transcon’s first California-based full-time biologist. In her time at Transcon, she has worn many hats, including senior biologist, project manager, program manager, and client manager. In 2012, she became Transcon’s Biology Group lead, and in January 2017, she became the Pacific regional manager, two positions that redirected her to a path of management. While she will always have a love of biology, she feels like she has found her calling in supervision, mentoring, and leadership. Christy was promoted to company president in 2021.
