Christine has enjoyed living with dogs and cats most of her life. She got bit by the training bug when she adopted a dog from a local rescue in 2009, which drove her to pursue an education in the science of animal learning and behavior modification. 


In 2014, she opened a private dog training and behavior consulting business in Fairfax, Virginia, which she successfully ran until joining the Animal Behavior Wellness Center team in 2019.


As a licensed Family Paws Parent Educator, Christine enjoys working with dog guardians who are expecting a baby, or already have an infant, toddler or preschooler in the home. She also has a passion for working with puppies, and helping new puppy parents navigate the challenges of life with their new best friend.


Christine is married and has 2 adult children. She also shares her home with her husky mix and a sweet kitty. In her free time, she loves being outdoors and especially loves hiking in the mountains.
