A friend from afar

Christine has such a gift of making the tough transition of your kids flying the coop and coming back into your own. Unfailingly positive and deeply genuine, she feels like a friend that is always supporting you from afar. She always gives sage advice and her episodes are bite sized and relevant. She’s amazing.
