Christine brings 30 years of experience with the Forest Service managing cultural and natural resources and forest special uses. During this time, she worked on four national forests where her experience includes working on the Lassen and Mendocino National Forests as an Archaeologist, and Lands and Recreation Officer. She had temporary promotions to Deputy District Ranger and District Ranger in Missouri and California. Hill’s last assignment was Mad River District Ranger on the Six Rivers National Forest.
As an archaeologist, Hill worked with various tribes throughout Northern California working collaboratively on natural and cultural resources enhancement, education and historic preservation projects. Throughout her tenure she has supported fire management serving as a collateral duty firefighter, dispatcher, and Resource Advisor.
Hill holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology, a Graduate Certificate in Natural Resource Management, and recently completed the Executive Leadership Program through Graduate School, USA’s Center for Leadership and Management. She is originally from Philadelphia, Pa., so city life is not foreign to her. Managing a work/life balance is important to Christine and she enjoys travel, adventure, outdoor recreation, and continued learning.
“I am looking forward to working closely with communities and partners on issues such as community protection, managing recreational use, and supporting a healthy forest watershed.”
Ranger Hill fills the position formerly held by former District Ranger Gabriel Garcia who retired in January.
