Christine has built her career in entrepreneurial organizations as was drawn to Mission Graduates because of its thoughtful and comprehensive approach to helping students and their families gain a broader range of life opportunities through a college education. Most recently she was Chief Commercial Officer at Hyperion Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical company focused on treatments for children with a very rare, life threatening group of diseases called urea cycle disorders. Christine began her career as an AmeriCorps member with Partners in School Innovation, a San Francisco based non-profit which helped San Francisco Bay Area public schools with underserved student populations design and implement sustainable institutional change. She holds both a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy and a MBA from Stanford University.
Christine joined the Mission Graduates Board of Directors in 2016 and is also a Co-Founder and Board President of the Elizabeth Nash Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis.
