President of the Board | She, Her, Hers

Christine has served on the ISLI board since its inception and currently serves as Board President. Christine is the district teacher librarian at Manson Northwest Webster Schools, meaning she works with preschoolers to high school seniors (she claims it is the best job in the world). Christine and her husband Rob are the parents of five adult children. She is a doctoral candidate at Drake University, working toward a PhD in Education.. Her dissertation is a phenomenology on the student voice movement in which she will conduct interviews to determine the perceptions, motivations, and aspirations of student voice movement leaders.


Christine is excited about the future of IowaSLI. When not at work, writing her dissertation, or sitting it on IowaSLI team meetings, she enjoys reading children's novels, shopping at thrift stores, and attending music concerts.
