After many years in clinical practice, nursing leadership, and education, Christine was struck by the significant stress evident among healthcare teams and shifted her focus to introducing mindfulness as a tool to cultivate resiliency and mitigate burnout. In her current role at Endicott College, she focuses on integrating mindfulness and resiliency training into the formal education of nursing students and also continues to offer a variety of Mindful Wellbeing & Resiliency programs in both the academic and clinical settings. In addition, Christine offers both individual and group Mindfulness Based Health and Wellness Coaching to foster the creation of sustainable, personalized pathways for mindfulness and wellbeing. Mindfulness Based Health and Wellness Coaching provides the foundational support to build and lead a flourishing life. Here at UMass Memorial Health Care, Christine leads 8-Week MBSR and Mindfulness Tools courses open to all, and she is always inspired by mindfulness teaching and learning through community and connection.

Outside of work, Christine enjoys keeping active (preferably by or on the ocean) while spending time with her adult daughters, pups, and family
