Christine coordinates meetings, trainings and other events for the CCC, as well as publicity and public relations.  These roles mesh together in the weekly email newsletter she launched – the CCC Wednesday Communique – and on the CCC’s website she manages.  Christine was invited to join the CCC in 2011 to expand its web presence and support the director’s efforts to grow the membership.  She is passionate about issues affecting older residents in Maine, sits on the Board of Directors for Legal Services for the Elderly, and explores ways to support elders through Washington County Thriving in Place, one of the CCC’s initiatives.  Christine is also a freelance writer with a background in philosophy and ancient languages & cultures, but uses her communication skills to promote non-profit organizations in the here and now.  She earned a Master of Theological Studies Degree at Boston University and a bachelor’s in Celtic Studies at St Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia.  Christine lives in Cutler with her sister, Anneke, and Cat, Weston.
