Media / Clarity / Reputations

Christine loves words. She has served clients at Ingenuity since 2005, starting out in copywriting and public relations strategies. She earned a reputation for landing informative articles for her clients in business press and trade publications — long before being a “thought leader” was a thing.

Now a seasoned communications consultant, Christine focuses on lead-generating content strategies and reputation management for professionals across the country. Her previous career in journalism and grammar queen skills ensure quality and industry relevance both inside and outside of Ingenuity.

Research and ghostwriting are her happy place. She also takes great pleasure in preparing food from her big garden, planning vacations and collecting art museum experiences wherever she travels. Her greatest mission is raising two awesome daughters with her first (and only) husband.

What is the most adventurous thing you’ve experienced in your life so far?  

In October 2014, my childhood friend and I self-toured Florence, Siena, Venice and Sicily. I have vivid memories of late dinners together, a private wine tasting, seeing the olives ripening and viewing amazing art and architecture. Giggling while lost in the narrow passages of Venice one night topped the torta.   

What is your go-to workout? 

My job involves a lot of sitting, so go-to workouts right now are regular active flow yoga (hot yoga when I can!), jogging, and winter BeachBody workouts online. My must-have expedition is hiking 14ers in the Colorado Rockies. I love being at the same altitude as a mountain goat. 

What is your definition of an amazing client relationship?

It’s a relationship where we can joke with each other and have fun while creating amazing projects together that help them stand out as advisors — and make their clients very happy. I also love winning awards for them because it means that they trusted Ingenuity’s creativity. 

Must-see destination before you’re 100?

I must see County Donegal in Ireland, as I believe it is where my mother’s family originates. My sister claims that our ancestors were mercenaries!

What’s the best meal you’ve had lately? 

Every so often, I have a nice ribeye with buttery mushrooms on the side and a glass of Italian red wine from the Chianti or Abruzzo region. Then I take a nap.
