Born in Moose Jaw but raised in Regina, Krista Christensen doesn’t hesitate to cheer, “I love Regina!” and she’d never want to live anywhere else! Krista’s gift for writing, visual media and public relations is readily apparent to all who meet her. Growing up with a dad who was a photographer and a mother who was a writer, Krista and her three younger brothers naturally gleaned a lifetime love for learning, and an appreciation for history and the world around them.
One of Krista’s main roles is keeping the Speers team in touch with the many care giving organizations in the city that share the role of helping those who experience a death. Hospitals, care homes, grief support organizations, churches and clergy and other not-for-profit entities are just a few of the many lives that Krista keeps in contact with on a regular basis. She is also a committee member on the provincial bereavement networking committee.
Providing assistance with practical matters, grief support, referrals to appropriate resources and follow-up calls after the funeral service are some of the many ways that Krista touches families in need. As well, Krista skillfully organizes Speers special events and is available to provide education to the community about grief, loss and funerals. Krista and her partner of over 30 years, Gord Sinnett, love animals, and currently have five cats, two dogs and huge aquarium. All of their pets have been rescued and are fortunate to be settled in a caring home. Krista has two stepchildren and one step-grandchild.
In her spare time, Krista loves walking her dogs, gardening, camping, and enjoying a steaming cup of hot chocolate and a great book!
After spending many years in a variety of roles from broadcasting, to organizational management, to facilitating grief support programs, Krista feels as though she has come ‘home’ to work with the compassionate, friendly and professional team at Speers.
