Marketing & Communications Intern – she/her/hers
Christen found her voice advocating with Just Moms STL to overturn EPA’s decision to cap and leave Manhattan Project radioactive waste at the Bridgeton West Lake Landfill in North St. Louis County. Christen is the creator and photographer of the social media campaign, Humans of West Lake Landfill. The project was created to draw attention to the human cost of exposure to the World War II radioactive waste and the consequences of living next to the landfill while it experiences an underground fire. The project was recognized and showcased by St. Louis Community College at Wildwood during their inaugural, Making Knowledge Human Series — The Atoms Next Door. In her spare time she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family, hiking, nature photography, and bakes a pretty mean Dutch Apple Pie.
