Born and raised in Annandale, Virginia, Christine was drawn to performance starting with her first role as the Yellow Brick Road in her drama camp's production of The Wizard of Oz. That's right, not a even munchkin, but the Yellow Brick Road itself. How's that for a formative experience?
Christine attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology where she gave her most challenging performance to date: acting like she was at all interested in science or technology. She later graduated from The College of William and Mary with a B.A. in Theatre and Elementary Education, and with a deep, passionate love for Wawa coffee.
Once thrown unceremoniously into the real world, Christine settled in the DC area, where she performed with various theatre companies, sang at churches and cabarets, and taught nearly every child in the DMV how to play Zip Zap Zop. In 2020, Christine began her MFA in Drama at the University of Virginia, where she continues to study and teach Acting 1 to the undergraduates. College-level rules to Zip Zap Zop available upon request.
