Christine has been speaking publicly for two decades. She has a gift for engaging her audience through humor and vulnerability, and easily connects with parents or professionals.
She is a co-presenter in the DVD “Chaos to Healing: Therapeutic Parenting 101,” which presents practical application of the P.A.C.E. model developed by Dan Hughes, Ph.D. Her YouTube channel is free to the public, and is utilized across the country by parents, therapists and foster parenting organizations.
With a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications, Christine has spoken on various topics to large groups (100+) as well as led small group sessions for twenty years. Just a few of her therapeutic parenting based speaking engagements have included: Grandparents as Parents meeting, Ben Richey Boys Ranch staff training, Parenting in SPACE (pre-conference, keynote and break out sessions), break out session at the Texas Foster Family Association‘s annual conference, and the HOPE Conference intensive pre-conference. She has also been a guest on the Adoption Perspectives Radio Show, and was interviewed for ATN’s Educating Traumatized Children Summit.

*Beginning September 1, 2018, in order to amplify more voices of color in the adoption and foster care community, I would like to know if you have had a person of color speak in the same capacity in the last three calendar years. They should have served at the same level as you are asking of me (keynote, conference breakout, leading a support group, etc.) and their pay, above travel expenses, should have been equal to mine or higher. I will gladly provide you with my fee schedule for comparison. If this criteria has not been met, thank you for understanding that I must decline your speaking invitation at this time. For recommendations, please see the Voices of Color page.
