Later, Christine would report and produce segments for 435 Magazine in high school. In college, she interned and worked at KMBC9 News in Kansas City. She listened to overnight police scanners, ran the assignment desk and teleprompter on weekend mornings.

She was born and raised in Overland Park, Kansas, graduating with a Journalism degree and Creative Writing minor from The University of Kansas.

Christine loves connecting with her community and listening to different perspectives. She believes it is an honor to share your story every day.

When Christine isn’t in the newsroom or reporting in the field, she enjoys surfing lakes, hiking with her fiancée and Australian Shepards, arranging flowers, and finding the best tacos in the Valley.
