Mini Bio (1)

Nominated for an Emmy and named "Boston's Best Meteorologist" by Improper Bostonian magazine, Christine started out as a Geology major with a love of theater. When her college advisor heard her sing at a local opera cafe, he set up a unique internship for her in the KCRA weather department in Sacramento.

Since then, Christine has hosted, anchored, forecast and headlined newscasts across the nation including KABC in Los Angeles, WCCO in Minneapolis, WHDH in Boston and KHQ in Spokane, WA where she also became known as an audio book reader for Books in Motion. Her live severe weather coverage and severe weather programming has garnered several station Emmy Awards and her work as host of "The Snow Snow" in Minnesota led to a Hirsch Broadcasting award for Sports programming in it's first season.

On stage she has played Mary Bailey in the musical "It's a Wonderful Life," Sarah in Sondheim's "Company," Gloria Upson in "Mame," Lydia in "The Vampyre," and Grace Bradley in "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever." During community college she also worked at a regional melodrama on the California Coast playing Cornelia Worthington (Sole heir to the fabled Worthington fortune) where dastardly predicaments most predictably ensued for the entire season.

A military veteran with a legacy of service that dates back continuously to the American Revolution, Christine flew with the Air National Guard with units in Minnesota and California as a C-130 Hercules Loadmaster, instructor and Aerial Firefighter. She is a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan as well as many peacetime and readiness airlift missions around the globe.

Before her military service, she climbed numerous North and South American peaks as high as 22,842', kayaked solo for a week through the Apostle Islands on frigid Lake Superior, bicycled from San Francisco to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway, completed Olympic length triathlons and traversed the Sierra Nevada alone.

She holds a B.S. in GeoScience and an MFA in TV and Film Screenwriting.
