Chris’s background includes a 25-year career in print journalism; serving as  Communications Director and Public Information Officer for a transit agency; and providing strategic direction for business growth for two engineering firms. Her passion for leadership and mentorship enable teams to do their best work for clients while also reaching their own goals. She is also a fierce advocate for public participation in projects that impact and improve our communities.  

Outside of work, Chris enjoys reading, yoga, visiting wineries with her husband, and perfecting (ha!) her golf swing.
