Christine is a first-generation American, married for nearly 20 years to her college sweetheart, and mother to two wonderful children who attend Clear Creek ISD schools. She earns her living as an independent marketing writer. As a passionate advocate for sound public policy, she has seen first hand how much the district’s children and families, particularly in District 5, need a strong voice ensuring success for every student. Christine is that voice.
Growing up outside Los Angeles, Christine experienced the negative impact of shortsighted education policies that harmed economically disadvantaged and special education students. Even as she went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Public Information from Emerson College in Boston and subsequently began her career and family, Christine remained avidly interested in public policy. As a CCISD volunteer, she serves as Advocacy Chair for the Hall PTA and regularly lends her time to assist at both Hall Elementary and Creekside Intermediate. Being physically present at the schools and seeing challenges that teachers, students, and families face inspired her to join the Creekside Campus Instructional Improvement Committee.
Christine understands that parents ultimately know what is best for their children, including for their education, which is why she’s running for the CCISD Board of Trustees, District 5 position. Parents have faced challenges with school closures, and many are worried about potential changes to the curriculum; taxpayers need to know that bond money will be spent on approved projects; and teachers require the funds and resources to provide the best education for every child in the district. She is running for the Board of Trustees to ensure policies enacted by CCISD seek to ease these challenges and build CCISD into the best school district in the state of Texas.
As a communicator by nature and by trade, Christine won’t be afraid to ask tough questions and make tough decisions in the best interest of District 5. She’ll bring to the Board the critical thinking and investigative reporting skills that have propelled her throughout her career. Her focus on areas such as technology, software, and cybersecurity will bring much-needed expertise to the Board. And she won’t be content with doing things the way they’ve always been done.
When you vote for Christine, you’re voting for a conservative Republican who won’t hesitate to be a fierce advocate for everyone in District 5: the parents and families who want the best for their students, the taxpayers who want to keep spending in check, and the teachers and staff who need a Board that empowers them to do what’s best for students. Most importantly, you’re voting for the success of every student in the district.
