About

I wrote a memoir in high school. After reading it, my teacher urged me to keep writing. Of course I didn’t. Instead, I planned to go to medical school but eventually found my way to the nonprofit sector. While I was researching and developing innovative programs in workforce, economic and youth development, I realized something was missing. I missed writing and sharing stories. 

Today, I write about sports, science, health, fitness, and nutrition. My features, profiles, and essays have appeared in The Washington Post, Outside Magazine, Runner's World, Family Circle, SELF, Eating Well, VICE, and espnW, among others. {See my portfolio here.} She often writes for universities and alumni magazines of Columbia College, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons, and Phillips Academy.

In addition to writing, I’m a yoga teacher, runner and wannabe surfer. 

I earned my B.A. in Art History from Columbia University and my Masters of Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and two sons.


 

"Insightful, talented, responsive, professional and collaborative. Just a handful of words to describe Christine based on my experience working with her as an ongoing contributor to Athleta's content programs and social media campaigns. She has a gift and drive to create content that inspires, informs and engages a community."

I'm a tremendous fan of Christine's writing for a number of reasons. Most important to me, however, is the compelling writing voice. She's able to clearly distill complex topics into language I can grasp without ever sounding condescending. When she writes about subjects I’m currently experiencing (struggles with motherhood or career path), I find myself NODDING in agreement as she normalizes my life without realizing it. The bottom line is I'd read anything thing she wrote. Her voice is what keeps me returning to her blog and seeking her out elsewhere.
