Colleagues can’t quite agree whether Christine is wicked smart or get-things-done smart. But they do agree that she brings positivity, deep empathy and an appreciation for each individual to her work. Starting as a developer in an HP incubator program and later as a sales engineer, pre- and post-sales consultant, product manager and strategy consultant, Christine has devoted her career to rebuilding the bridge between business and IT. She now specializes in organizational health and agility in software development and business. And she has a knack for making things grow. She volunteers as co-lead for Fort Collins Startup Week as a Startup Colorado board member, as a judge for CSU Collegiate Challenge and in Startup Summer, helping college interns learn about Lean startup. Christine also founded and grew Fort Collins New Tech—a startup pitch night that is now part of the 10,000-member New Tech Colorado community. Follow Christine on LinkedIn and Twitter.
