Biography

As part of the External Relations, Christine manages the development and successful delivery of events that enhance the profile of the SFU Beedie School of Business and links us with our communities. She oversees planning, content, and execution of Beedie’s advertising and promotion for responsible events, including online and print communications, media and public relations activities, and provides advice to support speakers and program areas in the faculty.

Prior to that, Christine spent 6 years as the Associate Director of SFU Beedie's Employer Engagement team and 10 years as the Campus Recruitment Manager for SFU's Career and Volunteer Services. Christine’s experience also includes large in-person and hybrid event management, student advising (career and academic), ESL, co-op, recruitment, telecom and banking.

Christine enjoys spending time with her husband, 2 kids, and 4 fur-kids (5 if you include the tarantula). She loves food, fashion, and fun in the sun. Being equipment manager and back-catcher for the Beedie Batters softball team has been the highlight of her career.
