Interim Executive Director and Counsel
Christine joined our LESA team at the end of 2010 as the Associate Director of Educational Resources. In her current role as Counsel, Christine primarily works on CPLED module development, including learning exercises, background readings, reference materials, assignments, and competency evaluations.
When we asked Christine what her favorite thing we’ve done (or eaten) as a team was, she responded, “Pie of course! I love that LESA has its own special tradition for the celebrations of our team and our team members.” She also loves anything chocolate, so in the office’s veggie-versus-sweets debate, Christine is on team sweets!
Christine’s educational background began with a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Alberta, which she earned in 2003. She then received her LLB designation from the U of A in 2006 and went on to get her LLM designation from Columbia University in 2010 as a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar.
Before joining the LESA team, Christine clerked at the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta from 2006–2007 and then moved on to be an articling student and Associate (Real Estate Group) at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP from 2007–2009.
As a mother of 2 and wife to her wonderful husband, Christine has plenty to keep her busy outside of the office. She also enjoys baking, cooking, and relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine. In her spare time, she volunteers with the Lendrum Community League on the Playground Redevelopment Committee to help raise money for a new neighbourhood splash park. She is also president of the board at her daughter’s preschool.
