Bio

Christine is an executive & organizational coach, program strategist, and leadership development expert with 20+ years of experience leading diverse teams in turning vision into profitable and impactful action. In government leadership, corporate army, and coaching/advisory roles, she has worked with organizations overseeing their entire program lifecycle—from ideation to execution. Christine can navigate complexity and ambiguity while coaching organizational departments, C-suite teams, and individual leaders in the pursuit of better. Her expertise includes vision execution, coaching program development, and change management strategy.

In her most recent role as the Talent Manager & Army Coaching Program Director at the U.S. Army, Christine led the strategy, development, and implementation of the nationwide Army Coaching Program—the first of its kind. It brought executive-style coaching to all Soldiers and Army Civilians, equipping them with professional and personal growth tools. A big-picture strategist with an eye for detail, she oversaw the entire program, including change management, budget, and resource allocation. She quickly secured executive buy-in, and the coaching program was signed by the directive as an order by the Secretary of the Army. She also oversaw the program’s selection and training of 250+ coaches. The results: participation of 3000+ active service members, YoY growth since launch, 25% improved retention in specific cohorts, and a 92% satisfaction rate. Christine has worked with executives and leaders within JLL, OCTO Consulting, Salesforce, WMATA and PWC. When not coaching or managing programs, she is likely planning her next big trip—whether it’s learning to ski on the Alps or riding elephants in Thailand.
