my story :
cheeky fun fact background:
I grew up in Montreal, Canada. Downhill/woods skiing, paired with website design/branding was my absolute passion growing up. I dreamed of one day moving to America (NYC specifically), and starting a business. Now in my twenties, I just moved out of NYC, and now live in Seattle, USA. My middle name is Sedona.
My journey started in 2012 - 2013 when I became passionate about health and fitness; taking nutrition courses in university and training for bikini competitions. In 2014, my journey shifted drastically, when I went into recovery from anorexia, fitness addiction, and orthorexia. I lost most of my hair, had completely secluded myself from my friends, and felt so disconnected from who I was, what I wanted to do in life, and how life was supposed to be lived. It was as if I was learning how to live at 19 years old, rather than in childhood like most humans do.
I went vegan overnight and took my health into my own hands. A year later, in March 2016, while in my senior year of business school at the University of Connecticut, I felt eager to use my business skills & mind, that I wasn't getting out of a textbook in class. I started my first company, Barefoot Babes Apparel, a vegan t-shirt company. I managed the entire business as sole proprietor, and was a one-woman-show. I learned to do everything from design, to traditional marketing, influencer marketing (before it was in the heyday it is today), creative directing, photographer and shoot manager, customer service, web design, etc. (all of which have now become freelance services that any of you can hire me for! 😊).
In 2017, I decided to embark on a low waste/low impact lifestyle, free of plastic and excessive waste on the environment. Months later I closed my clothing business due to my ethics no longer alining with fashion/excessive consumption lifestyle.
I now am an aspiring full time creator, pursuing meaningful filmmaking and encouraging an intentional community of my absolutely incredible followers. I do so mostly through my youtube channel, podcast, and membership community on patreon. I also sell limited edition SedonaChristina zero waste tools, release a newsletter each week, and freelance brand design & curate for other creators and entrepreneurs.
