Christina is the founder and owner of the Café des Sentiers, an independent coffee shop serving fair trade locally roasted coffee right in the Gatineau Park. The Café just opened in January 2019 and prides itself in the quality of the products it serves and the enriching interactions with its clientele.
Christina grew up in an entrepreneurial home, her mom having owned and operated a number of businesses, including a coffee shop, in Montreal where she grew up. Christina studied business administration and international affairs at HEC Montreal and the University of Ottawa respectively. She has lived and worked in Mexico, Israel, Guinea and France and travels extensively for work and pleasure. She took a short break from her career in international affairs to embark on this entrepreneurial adventure. She is also involved with the Gatineau Skateboard Association, of which she is a founding member. She lives in Hull, 5 minutes away from her coffee shop, with her husband, three kids and dog.
