OFF THE JOB

Christine was born and raised on a small farm on the outskirts of Salem. She attended Cascade High School and was active in five different 4-H clubs. She is the mother of one and looks forward to the day when her daughter is old enough to follow in her hoof prints and show lambs at the Marion County Fair.

Christine enjoys gardening and hiking. She recently took up snowshoeing, although on stormy winter days you are more likely to find her inside reading a book than tromping through the woods.
