As one of the founding members of SPECC-tacular Productions, Christine is one of the C’s in SPECC.

In 1980, Christine moved to Maple Ridge with her family and in 2003, she joined Millennium Players Theatre Group. She was involved in many of their shows mainly backstage and managing props, with an appearance on stage on rare occasions.
