I am a seasoned Human Resources professional, Organizational Development consultant and facilitator with almost 25 years of experience in various roles and industries (including financial services, technology, and higher education). I hold an MBA from McMaster University and am passionate about continuous learning.
I enjoy coaching leaders and teams to help them reach their full potential. I facilitate and train professional learners and am currently an instructor with McMaster Continuing Education and a part-time faculty member with Conestoga College's Faculty of Business.
With Christine Connects, my goal is to help people create connections with their teams, themselves, and their environment.

In my spare time, I love making music and spending time in nature.
How do I describe myself? These three words describe my strengths, experience and motivations. They are things that underpin any role I take on and the lenses I use to see the world.
I want to take creative action to solve big problems in the workplace. I want to help shape the future of work and the meaning of leadership. I hope to share ideas that make an impact in people's lives (no matter how big or small).
I plan, guide and manage group conversations and learning to help people meet their goals. Whether it's facilitating a meeting or a session or an event, I love using tools and techniques to help people learn about themselves, solve complex problems and help make difficult decisions.
I am a relationship-focused person who values social connection. I have a genuine interest in people (and their potential) and love to support and assist others. I like to connect people with each other and to ideas and knowledge.
