Christine works as our Director of Outreach. She is a native to the Pacific Northwest and calls the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley her home. Her two sons are very prominent in her life and she enjoys spending quality time with them. She has a passion for fitness and music. Adoption has had a positive influence on Christine’s family, dating back as far as the 1950s. She has a heart for young children and has been very blessed to have developed a career in early childhood education through the preschool program at her church. She has worked closely with children aged 2-5 for eight years, including families of adoption. The children’s innocence and unconditional love have shown her how important a strong family unit is to the development and well-being of every child. She loves being a part of the Open Arms family where she matches our mothers to the resources they need and gets to know all of our parents.
