Christi joined the ERS team in late 2019 as Manager, Education, but has been an ERS user since 1996 when she was first introduced to the Cancer Registry profession. Her career path has evolved over time revealing a true passion for education and advocacy of others entering and navigating the Cancer Data industry. Christi is a firm believer in the value of learning from others’ experiences and being open-minded to changes and challenges. Her work has resulted in many valuable relationships and an even more valuable sense of what is needed to create and maintain an environment of constant learning in order to stay on top of the abundant growth in the world of cancer care, cancer data, and cancer program management. In addition to her work with ERS, Christi serves as a member of the AJCC Editorial Committee and looks forward to developing further in that role. Outside of her professional life, Christi embraces spirituality, loves spending time with her family, traveling, volunteering in her community, and passes time learning to play cello and chess and with other thought provoking games and puzzles.
