Cameran Mason

I have been involved with CRI since the Fall of  2014 when my daughter started rowing as a novice on the girls competitive team.  She is now a member of the girls varsity competitive team. I have been so very impressed with CRI and with the impact that rowing has on those who have the good fortune to become part of the CRI community. The coaches model important core values of hard work and teamwork and the physical and mental discipline rowing requires is transformative.  The mission of CRI resonates with me -- it is a powerful engine for good for so many in our community. 

 My professional background and expertise is in fundraising and communications. I have been working as Vice President for Resources and Public Affairs at Wellesley College, my alma mater, since May 2008. Prior to working at Wellesley, I held a similar position at Barnard College for eight years. I also bring experience as a trustee in the nonprofit world, having served as a trustee of the Dana Hall School for six years.

She also has a daughter on the competitive youth team and has loved chaperoning and supporting the youth teams.

Professionally, Christina is a clinical health psychologist who specializes in eating and weight disorders and anxiety. She works primarily with adolescents, young adults and parents. Christina is active in outreach work in the Boston community, working closely with multiple local organizations, and she is excited to get more involved in CRI’s outreach programs. She brings to the board the dual perspective of someone involved in both adult and youth programs, and she has experience with team sweep rowing as well as sculling. She also brings a strong foundation in health psychology, values and commitment strategies and, mostly, unbridled enthusiasm for the people and mission of CRI and the sport of rowing.
