Christine is passionate about creating things, solving problems with efficiency and effectiveness, and helping others develop and grow. She graduated with a degree in art and later pursued education. She is currently a substitute elementary school teacher and a Pilates instructor. Christine loves to travel, particularly to big cities, where she enjoys exploring museums and trying amazing food. She’s excited to spend more time in Chicago where her daughter recently moved. Christine appreciates movies, comedy events, and almost any live music. She spends her free time playing Mahjong, kayaking, and loves creating various fiber arts and craft projects.
Christine finds fulfillment working alongside the amazing and talented women of JLOCC and has learned so much from every member with whom she’s worked. She looks forward to her role on this year’s Board of Directors and is excited to discover what they will accomplish.
