In her free time she enjoys cooking, hiking and being active outside and cheering on the NY Yankees! She has fallen in love with the South for its warm, beautiful weather and friendly faces.

Christine wants to hear from you whether it's to share a story idea or just to say hello. She is excited to call Spartanburg her new home and to bring you the latest stories from the Upstate.
