Christine graduated from Angelo State University's honors college with a degree in history, minoring in business administration. In her time at Angelo State, she worked on projects funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, presented research at the Great Plains Honors Council Conference, and served as president of the history honors society (Phi Alpha Theta). Her proudest accomplishment is her undergraduate thesis, a yearlong project that involved research and extensive writing on women's roles in poverty relief in the Republic of Ireland. Currently, she is studying at the University of Texas at Arlington's graduate school, advancing her skills as a writer and historian.
Christine has worked in various leadership roles. She served as a mentor for honors college freshmen for two years in her time at Angelo State. She has also worked as a transcriber, documenting the experiences of various Texas war veterans. Additionally, she has led women's ministries in the university atmosphere. Christine credits much of her appreciation for the value of hard work to her time working at Starbucks throughout her high school and part of her college years.
