 My name is Christine, I am a proud mother of 2 adult children, one husband and the sweetest Pitbull anyone could meet. I enjoy traveling, being active outdoors and spending time with friends and family. I have a master’s degree in organizational management, bachelor’s in human services and my Associates (which is the foundation of who I am today) in Mental Health and Substance Use. My experience varies from Community outreach to Child welfare and Hospital management for medical detox. I am currently a Substance Program manager along with being a CSS with NCC.  I was born and raised in NYC, relocated to Florida (one of many places I lived) with the family. I had the opportunity to work with a company in North Carolina that served people with TBI in a residential placement for people with Traumatic Brain Injury. I have to say this is where I found my ministry of love. I learned how the brain works when it is traumatized, the behaviors that can be observed, and the different characters and personalities which comes with each person. It has been a great learning experience and it has filled my heart to be able to help people who need help. Not so much just because, more so to help them live a productive life and one of independents.  I currently work with The Bindu Institute, and my warrior has shown so much growth and has learn new ways of handling her day-to-day life. It's always a blessing to see growth in my clients.
