Christine’s flight path to business coach and advisor began as a commercial loan officer on the Oregon Coast. There, she recognized the importance of good leadership in business success. Drawing from her banking background, Christine built and managed a group of tourist attractions. She invested in the leadership development of her 55 part-time, minimum-wage employees. That paid off in increased motivation, loyalty, and company profits.
Later, as COO of a medical device manufacturing business, Christine continued to prioritize leadership development. She recognized its importance in her team’s performance even though they had job stability, good pay, and benefits. Since 2000, Christine launched her own company and serves clients as a business coach and advisor. She is now based in the Eugene, Oregon area.
