We once heard that Christine grew up in the circus and we’re pretty sure it was doing balancing acts and keeping tons of balls in the air at once! Funny thing is she hasn’t fallen far from that tree since she can still juggle her pursuit of career, family, passion for the outdoors, and insatiable appetite for life with perfection. The insatiability began at CU Boulder with a Bachelor of Arts, Sociology and Peace and Conflict Studies, and continued with a Master’s in Landscape Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Colorado at Denver.

After moving to the Roaring Fork Valley she couldn’t decide whether to ski or garden so she decided to juggle both! Her curiosity of people and their interaction with space, love of Rocky Mountain adventures, and desire to preserve her back for her kids inspired her pursuit of landscape design. Although Christine is fascinated with the potential of landscape as an indicator of policy, cultures and natural ecologies, it is her OCD, love of checklists, and uncanny ability to juggle so many balls at once that ultimately gets the job done. She is committed to developing more inspired, sincere and sustainable operations that integrate a sensitive and meaningful exchange between culture and nature. Christine’s professional experience ranges in scale from high end residential landscapes to hotels to large scale master planning. The variety and scale of work keeps things fun and crazy, but at heart Christine is just a simple gardener.
