Christine graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Social and Behavioral Sciences. She then earned an M.Phil. in Cognitive Neuropsychology from George Washington University and an M.D. from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Christine’s M.Phil. research focused on the processes involved in learning and memory. She has been recognized for her academic excellence as a two-time recipient of the Columbian College Women’s Scholarship and three-time recipient of training awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Christine’s NIH research focused on brain processing necessary for planning and sequencing of thoughts and actions.

Christine is a board-certified emergency medical physician who has extensive experience teaching science and medicine: she taught and supervised medical, undergraduate, and high school students at summer programs for the NIH, she served as coordinating instructor for undergraduate laboratory courses and as course instructor for various courses at George Washington University, she has been an attending physician instructor to medical students and physicians-in-training in academic emergency medical departments, and she has lectured in wilderness medicine and travel medicine. Additionally, Christine served as medical supervisor for desert archaeology expeditions at Yale University.

Christine is passionate about her work in wilderness medicine, research, and clinical medicine and enjoys sharing her interests with her students. Outside of tutoring and practicing medicine, Christine enjoys a lively household as a mother to four children, three cats, and one delightful, unruly family dog. This sometimes makes it a challenge to spend time on archaeological expeditions, but she still makes time to do that when she can!
