Every day should matter. I want to make sure that I am learning or teaching something every day, whether working with a client, team member or my family and friends. I look forward to making a difference by inspiring others to find what drives them to their greatest potential.

About Christine

When she’s not working, you can find Christine exercising, reading, attending her kids’ baseball games, cooking healthy meals for her family or trying a new recipe. Her passion for healthy living and nutrition even plays a role in one of her life goals.
