Never afraid to ask "why," her strategic sensibility and curiosity push the boundaries of those around her for unexpected, delightful, and practical outcomes.
Christine's favorite projects allow her to grow and learn. Constant collaboration with bright clients and creative peers make her long days a joy, a challenge, and a deeply satisfying way to live.
