As the TRIO Scholars Coordinator Christine works closely with a grant funded TRiO/SSS program specifically designed for incoming freshman who are first in their family to attend college and have a high financial need. 

Christine is a UNH alum who worked as an Academic Mentor at CFAR during her undergraduate years and returned to CFAR as a professional staff member in 2007.  Her professional work experience at CFAR has included overseeing the tutorial program, where she provided course specific assistance to TRIO eligible students, and supervised SSS tutorial staff. 

She grew up in the Lakes Region of NH and upon graduating from college she spent ten years in Boston  working as an admissions counselor for Quincy College, as a human resource professional for Deloitte & Touche USA LLP and Ahold USA, and as a patient/family relations representative for Brigham & Women’s Hospital.

Christine enjoys spending time with family and friends and participating in outdoor related activities.  She, along with husband, two children, and dog Barley take many trips to family cabins in the mountains of NH and VT.  Christine has traveled throughout the United States and Caribbean and taken one Trans-Atlantic trek to London.

After spending time living and working in the Boston area, she is very excited to be back in her home state and working in a role that will allow her to give back to the UNH community.
