Christine passionately believes in the value of women.
Especially women executives and business owners who own their power and use it for good. A Seattle native, Christine earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Georgetown University and a Certificate in Fundraising Management from University of Washington. She invests decades of deep life experience, business acumen, leadership development skills, and tough love to help women business owners and female executives create their best futures, by design.
From an early age, she’s helped people find their cadence.
In 1970 at age 9, during a summer band concert at the Ballard Locks in Seattle, Christine stepped up to guest conduct the 21st Army Band as it played the “Sound Off March.” Since then, she’s taken the podium to inspire audiences, sounding off with words of wisdom and empowerment. Christine has spoken as
- Coach and Consultant
- Director of Development and Nonprofit Advisory Board Member
- Washington State Membership & Program Chair and local Chapter President of Business & Professional Women
- Women’s Retreat Director and Teacher
- Girl Scouts Service Unit Manager and Camp Director/Storyteller.
Christine opened her coaching business in 2015.
After retiring at age 53 from a career in business and nonprofit development, Christine has logged over 200 coaching hours with over 30 clients (28 brilliant women and two smart guys). A member of International Coach Federation and International Christian Coaches Association, she relishes the excitement of watching women thrive through coaching. A graduate of CoachU’s Core Essentials and Advanced Corporate Coaching Programs, Christine earned the ICF Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential in January 2018. She’s involved in ICF locally and invested in lifelong learning.
Do people listen to you at a heart level as well as a mind level?
As a coach, Christine partners with her clients, listening deeply at the heart level and asking strategic questions to help them uncover their authentic goals and create their unique, proactive plan to attain them. Women gain new perspectives and the ongoing ability to march forward and create their best futures, by design. Appreciative clients now offer a strong ovation not unlike the one she received as guest conductor over 40 years ago.
Pursuing excellence, making a difference, celebrating life to the max.
Christine volunteers with local organizations that empower girls, women, low income minority students, and homeless and foster families. A portion of your coaching fees go to support these causes. Proud mom of two adult daughters, published author and songwriter, Toastmaster and novice Harley motorcyclist, Christine loves the Seattle Seahawks, great (decaf) coffee and chocolate, the scenic outdoors of the Pacific Northwest, travel, the arts, gardening, and adventuring with family and friends. Several of the photos on this site are her original pictures taken on her android phone.
