Cristiana Spooner – WWS Communications Manager

When did you join WWS? 

I’ve been the Communications Manager for Waldorf since May of last year. It’s been a wonderful experience. I’ve really enjoyed working with everyone at the school, as well as getting to know all the lovely students and families. I’ve also learned a lot more about Waldorf education and am very impressed with the principles of it.

What else do you do when you’re not at WWS?

I volunteer as a Girl Guides Leader with about 24 enthusiastic 9-12 year old girls on Monday nights and am proud to help with communications as a board member for Whistler Adaptive Sports Programs which run adaptive sports in the Corridor for all ages. I’m also an instructor at the Whistler Adventure School teaching editing with their Media & Marketing program. Visual communications design and marketing has always been my a big part of my life and now, I feel like I’m at the stage where I can hopefully impart what I’ve learned along the way working in communications and marketing in Whistler for over 25 years. It’s been a lot of fun and has recently inspired me to get my camera out again to capture more of this beautiful place we live in!

Thank you Cristiana!
