Christine brings to Watercrest over 14 years of collective experience in various business operations and administrative roles, more recently adding Licensed Practical Nursing and a Florida Real Estate License to her plate.
Christine is a Vero Beach native, graduating from Saint Edward’s School in 2000 and attended the University of Central Florida College of Business Administration in Orlando, FL. From 2005 – 2008, Christine served as a Permitting Coordinator for a successful civil and structural engineering firm, moving on to fulfill the role of Operations Manager for her family’s manufacturing company through the end of 2012. In 2013, Christine relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina where she attended ECPI University of Medical Sciences, graduating with her nursing degree nine days before delivering her daughter, Savannah Grace.
It was with the blessing of her angel, little Miss “Grace Face”, that Christine learned the true meaning of faith and service to others. Savannah Grace was born with a very rare chromosomal abnormality called Cri-du-Chat Syndrome, a French word for “Cry of the Cat”, that occurs in approximately 1 in 50,000 newborns. Miss Grace Face is missing a small portion of her fifth chromosome which results in intellectual disability and delayed global development. Despite her condition, Savannah Grace has continued to surprise the medical community with her physical and cognitive development, far surpassing the limits that have been expected of her syndrome. Savannah Grace’s claim to fame are her five dimples in one cheek and her nonstop belly aching laugh!
