In the year 2000, since the world did not end, she moved to Austin, Texas.

In 2005, she returned to Austin to take a position as an Academic Advisor in the Spanish and Portuguese Department at the University of Texas at Austin. While at UT, she also helped run faculty-led study abroad programs in Argentina, Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico, and Spain. In 2014, Christine returned to Oklahoma, and after another short run in the nonprofit world as the Director of Operations for Creative Oklahoma, she decided to return to advising. Christine loves to learn something new every day and welcomes challenges that keep her problem-solving skills sharp. As an advisor, she enjoys connecting students with appropriate resources that enhance their overall academic experiences at UCO.
