As the Director of Human Resources and Operations, Christine works closely with the Deputy Director of Operations and is responsible for the overall management of the human resources, facilities management and general business operations at Forward Together. Christine is passionate about bringing forward and giving a voice to traditionally marginalized communities, ensuring that everyone has the resources they need to live their best lives and protecting the rights of women to have self-determination over their bodies and reproductive choices.
Prior to coming to Forward Together, Christine worked as the HR Manager at a nonprofit serving minority children and as a paralegal in the labor and employment legal atmosphere, bringing many years of human resources-related experience to Forward Together. She especially enjoys putting together policies that align with organizational cultural values and creating and implementing employee support systems that allow employees to focus on the work at hand. Christine has always been interested in social justice issues of people of color, and volunteers for several nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area focused on helping women and children of color.
Outside of work, Christine loves spending time with her two daughters, her family, and her horse Ginger, and planning her next travel adventure.
