While proud of her Boston roots, Christine moved to South Florida and District 95 more than 21 years ago with her husband Hannes to raise their family. It didn’t take long for her to become active in the community by volunteering with local nonprofits and charitable causes. Her compassion and concern for others was the driving force to get involved. Before being elected State Representative for District 95, she served as Mayor of Parkland and previously as a Parkland City Commissioner. Under her leadership, her city won numerous awards including the best city in the state to raise a family. Christine was also a seven-year member of the Parkland Education Advisory Board and served as a member of the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Broward League of Cities School and Community Public Safety Task Force.
Her passion for education, economic opportunity, and continuous learning is clear as she holds an undergraduate degree from Boston University and an MBA from Babson College. She has also travelled around the county, state, and country to judge national Speech and Debate Tournaments while spending time to mentor these students as well.
Christine testified at the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force on the need for universal background checks before the United State House of Representatives. She continues to prioritize the importance of mental health and serves on the Florida Commission of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, which was established through her legislation. Her work ethic and solution-oriented approach helped her pass legislation and secure funding appropriations for the district in her freshman legislative session.
You will not find a more dedicated and committed public servant. Let’s help re-elect Christine so she can continue to make a difference for us.
