About Christine

Christine's Bio Image

Christine Penner Polle is an award-winning writer, teacher, former registered nurse and mother who lives in the beautiful boreal forest of northwestern Ontario. Her journey as a climate-concerned mother and lobbyist for change has brought her full circle back to healing work that began when she graduated as a nurse at the tender age of 20. Christine worked as a hemo-dialysis and geriatric nurse as well as nurse educator and trainer in both hemo-dialysis and telemedicine before transitioning to classroom teaching and writing. She has lobbied American and Canadian politicians in Washington and Ottawa for action on climate change and in 2016 authored Unfreeze Yourself: Five ways to take action on climate change NOW for the sake of your family, your health, and the planet. In her healing practice and her life, Christine spends her time celebrating the world we have now while working to create a livable future for our children and grandchildren.

Joseph Campbell's assertion that "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek," describes Christine's healing journey. Helping others walk through the cave of their fears and into their best life delights her and motivates her wellness practice.
