Cristina Serverius is originally from Belgium. She lived in Northern Italy and Rhode Island before settling down in Vancouver, Canada. She holds 5 graduate degrees, including a PhD in Comparative Literature from Brown University, and she's a 500hr-certified yoga teacher. Cristina is passionate about living a low-impact, zero-waste lifestyle and sees every consumer choice as a vote for the world she wants to inhabit. She teaches literature, writes on sometimes-obscure academic topics, speaks many European languages, hikes in British Columbia, and is an unashamed Peloton aficionado! She has traveled widely in Europe and North America, but her favorite travel destination is Australia.
