Christine serves the 501 Commons team as the Engagement Manager and Executive Assistant.
In her early career path, she worked in Business Administration and thrived in the technical and education sectors. She loves working with people and finds that working with diverse populations and communication were her strengths. In 2018, she started working in the nonprofit sector, allowing her to utilize her skills while giving back to the community. She teamed with Homage Senior Services and Cocoon House, two wonderful resources for the elderly and the homeless youth population.
When her mother was given a terminal diagnosis in 2019, this changed everything. She passed quickly afterward and that transition further developed Christine’s core belief that one should always leave the world better than when you found it. Her goal was to find what platform would accomplish that.
Christine finds fortitude in helping those in need and building strong foundations for the next generations. She aligns strongly with equality for all, social justice platforms, indigenous populations, mental health in our youth, people who are homeless, and ending intergenerational trauma.
She has lived in Washington for most of her adult life and resides in the Pacific Northwest with her loving partner, (Mads) and two completely spoiled dogs (Odie and Kai). She is blessed with four wonderful children (Ashley, Megan, Olivia, and Colby). She enjoys energy and healing work, meditation, hiking, cultivating plants, making complicated Korean food, longboarding, and yoga. Her favorite place is Hawaii, and often visits in February when the whales come to have their babies!
Fun Fact: She started her own organic skin care business, Peony Botanicals, in 2021 and is a certified reiki healer!
