Kristina Forcier (ES&P '2011)

Kristina Forcier (USA) earned a B.A in economics and international studies from Manhattan College in 2007. She also had the opportunity to study sustainable economic programs and international development at American University’s School of International Service. Since receiving her degree she has worked at Fidelity Investments where through analysis of the market it became increasingly evident that the effects of global capitalism have compromised our perception of the natural world, resulting in undermined economic growth and environmental systems. Van Dexter is looking forward to exploring a sustainable relationship between economic systems, particularly food systems, and ecology as well as the role of nature in psychological, emotional and community development.
