Christine is any of a number of things — a survivor, a philanthropist, a social media maven — but above all, you’re guaranteed that you won’t find anyone else like her in the world of digital media.

Given a second lease on life after a motorcycle accident in 2002, Christine regained her ability to walk and talk through rigorous discipline and determination. Not only that, she then managed to obtain various certifications and accolades, not least of all including:

  • Being at the top of her class for a certificate in Web Development and Design;
  • Obtaining a Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario Certificate with the second-highest mark in the group on a first try; and
  • A Community Member Award by the Toronto Police Services Board for her role in helping save a woman from a suicide attempt.

Christine has received glowing praise for the calibre of her work from numerous clients, with testimonials such as:

  • “Christine is detail oriented, understood our needs and was able to identify quickly what we are looking to achieve on the Hellenic Hope website. The finished product has gotten great reviews by everyone that has visited our site. Christine is very personable, easy to work with, reliable and efficient. I highly recommend her to anyone that is in need of her services.”Jim Anastasiadis, President at Magic White Inc.

  • “Her aptitude for the use of social media to represent the insurance industry was at the time well ahead of the curve and much needed. I have learned a great deal from Christine watching her and interacting with her through the social space. She is without a doubt a leader and an innovator.”Tim Burrows. Sergeant at Toronto Police Service

When she’s not working on the numerous projects that form her diverse body of work, Christine can be found working at a number of pursuits, including:

  • Volunteering at the Hellenic Hope Centre, much to the delight of the staff, volunteers and residents there;
  • Attending sessions of BrunchBabes, a brunch meetup which she founded to bring women from social media together in a comfortable, casual environment regardless of how many followers they have on Twitter or how popular their blog is; and
  • Co-hosting #RBChat, a relationship-building tweetchat which regularly yields upward of 8.6 million impressions and reaches an audience of more than 215,000 followers weekly

Christine has also been sought for her social influence by brands such as:

  • Virgin Airlines, who offered to fly her out to San Francisco as a reward for her influence where amongst many things she got to meet Sir Richard Branson
  • Ford Motors, who invited her to attend the 2013 North American International Auto Show as their guest
  • Numerous automotive brands who hand-pick her to test and review their vehicles, trusting her insights and input to learn more about their audience in the Toronto market
  • Christine has many loves in her life, including her husband; family; Sumo, her Old English Bulldog; friends; food; and of course, social media.
