Christa Bennett Consulting -
About

The daughter of a teacher and ethics professor-turned-clergyman, I grew up with a strong sense of interconnectedness with my community. Interconnectedness (Desmond Tutu calls it ubuntu) continues to motivate me to support communities where all have opportunities to thrive. I call it community wellness: taking care of our selves and taking care of each other.
 
To that end, I work with nonprofits that provide health, education, and job services and with campaigns that promote progressive heath, education, and job policies. I produce written collateral, such as grant applications, social media and website content, and print marketing text. I also create and implement communications and development strategies, including grassroots funding and political advocacy campaigns, donor cultivation, and corporate partnerships. For organizations requiring a more comprehensive suite of services, I partner with CIMA Consulting.
 
I hold a master's degree in international relations from King's College London. I am particularly interested in how public policy can better serve the wellbeing of women and children. I have worked with organizations in Europe, Africa, and North America.
 
I am the proud parent of two girls, both of whom attend Charlottesville City Schools. I am passionate about supporting students and teachers, and I am a member of the CCS School Health Advisory Board. I enjoy yoga, leaf countinggood podcasts, and camping and hiking with my Eagle Scout husband (we will never be stranded without food or fire!) and our daughters. My guilty pleasure is watching crime show reruns.
