Christine was born & raised in Cedar Rapids and attended Mount Mercy College for 2 years while working for a local (Claxton) pharmacy. She became a certified pharmacy technician in 1996 during her 36 year career in the long-term care / pharmacy field. She has one grown son and is now enjoying spoiling two grandchildren. For the past 12 years she has “rescued” neighborhood stray cats, had them neutered, and had found homes for some (but kept most). In her spare time she enjoys walking, biking (bicycle, not motorcycle), needlepoint, and country music & dance.
