Growing up in sunny Arizona the outdoor world was foreign to Christina and not quite inviting. However, after moving to beautiful Oregon five years ago, a whole new world opened up. In 2019, Christina launched Puffin Drinkwear alongside her brother Byron Linton and friend Tyrone Hazen. Operating a startup through a global pandemic has provided Christina a perspective of the good that happens when communities come together. This experience has been priceless and Christina would not trade it for anything. Her passion is to now use the skills she has gained have to build companies that collaborate, connect and transform communities.
In addition to exploring the outdoors, Christina loves exploring new cultures, learning languages, gardening and any sport that involves a board, oh and skydiving.
