Biography

With over a decade of fundraising for arts and conservation organizations, Christine has been involved in every aspect of fund and community development. From 2015 until starting with CalTrout in 2021, she worked for Land Trusts on major gift initiatives, working with staff and volunteer leaders in conservation and fundraising.

While working for regional conservation efforts in the Bay Area of California and the Treasure Coast of Florida, her interest was sparked by landscape-scale habitat restoration and the vital importance it serves to protect the natural environment. This led her to CalTrout where she is proud to help resource the organization’s statewide efforts to ensure healthy water for abundant wild fish and all the other species who rely on it, not least our own.

Christine fondly remarks, “CalTrout preserves many places where my grandfather cast his line, where my parents taught me to love nature, and where my son has since come to love. In particular, the Eastern Sierra has a special place in my heart so I’m particularly excited to see the work CalTrout does to protect those vital source waters and stunning meadows.”
