In her first job out of college, Cristine was hired to build a corporate university for a 5,000-employee business. Within 18 months, she established core curriculum, interviewed subject matter experts, designed course content, facilitated courses, and ultimately selected the first Learning Management System (LMS). She enrolled in graduate school to earn a Master’s in education, and expanded her career in Learning and Development as an Instructional Designer and learning consultant.
Since 1995, Cristine has helped organizations implement strategic learning initiatives from course design, competency mapping, role-based curriculum paths, and blended learning strategies to learning governance and technology infrastructure. Cristine has developed strategic learning and development roadmaps for organizations including Wells Fargo, Genentech, Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene (RFMH), Land Trust Alliance, and AAA.
Cristine has been featured in Training Magazine’s article Focus on Financial Fundamentals, and selected to present best practices in learning and development at industry conferences including Training and DevLearn. She co-hosted a two-part webinar on Learning Delivery – Meeting the Modern Learners Where They Are and has authored many “how to” industry blogs on topics including content strategy and learning governance.
Cristine volunteers as a Community Board Member for the Great Basin Institute (GBI).
