Christina Smith is a female warrior who’s been to battle and has the scars, stories, and successes to prove it! She knows what it’s like to be in the trenches of despair, the gloom of the abyss, heartbroken, injured, defeated and hopeless, to ultimately emerge determined, persistent and victorious. Christina is one of the world’s pioneers in women’s bobsleigh and Canada’s premier bobsleigh driver to compete at the inaugural Olympic Winter Games in 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. A native Quebecer, she currently resides in Calgary, Alberta Canada.
Formally retired from World Class sports, she is a two-time author, speaker and avid world traveler having been to 50 countries and counting. She is a networking guru and social capital specialist (otherwise known as a master connector and relationship curator). Christina is a positive visionary, big-picture creative thinker, change agent and lives from her core values of love, respect and to serve the greater good. She is intuitive and values innate emotional intelligence. She loves creating community via social gatherings and hosting workshops in order to give what women want, so they get what they need.
Christina has spent her life cultivating the critical soft skill tools and mindsets to enable her to create a bold, brave, self-directed life, rooted in kindness, compassion, and success. Despite her Olympic and World Class achievements, she believes that we all have equal power when aligning heart, engagement and being, differentiating solely by the choice to take action.
