She was Vice President at Universal Studios in the International Television arena and prior to that holding senior positions at Columbia Pictures and starting off her career in management at IBM for 5 years. After having her 2 sons, she studied at Place2Be and worked as a Child Counsellor for 2 years in two Primary Schools in Wandsworth and more recently she has been developing a career in Project Management and Interior Design.   

She received her MBA from London in 1995 and in 2001 trained and received her Diploma in Applied Humanistic Psychology from Spectrum Therapy, where she has continued her training in her Post Graduate Group since then.   

She has been a Director of Chickenshed Theatre Trust since 2001 and championed the development of Chickenshed’s first branch at Kensington & Chelsea which launched in April 2010. She is Chair of the Chickenshed Kensington and Chelsea Gala Committee and both her sons have been members of CKC Children’s & Youth Theatre so she fully understands the impact Chickenshed’s work has on young people.

Christine is a huge advocate of children’s wellbeing and became involved with Chickenshed after being inspired with Chickenshed’s values and sense of community, especially ‘we are all the same, yet all different’ and how every person is truly valued at Chickenshed.
