I declared the year 2017 as the year of “YES” and committed to myself that this would be the year to push myself out of my comfort zone, try new things and as my family would say …. Do EPIC SH^&.  And there is nothing that could be more out of my comfort zone or epic than committing to be a contestant with the Dancing With The Giordano Stars.  With no real dance talent but a love of music, the love of a personal challenge, and a love to giving back to the community, I have agreed to say YES.  I am excited to participate and most excited to raise money to further support Giordano Dance Chicago and their amazing outreach programs.

Christine’s husband, Chris, was a contestant with Dancing With The Giordano Stars in 2016 and was a big proponent of her saying YES to this challenge.  Christine is a former consultant with Protiviti Risk Management Consulting and now spends her time volunteering and being active in the lives of their two boys, Brinton (age 13) and Gunder (age 12).  Christine enjoys adventure travel with her family, volunteering at PAWS, is a member of the Allegheny College Alumni Council and enjoys all things French.  Christine practices yoga, is an avid snow skier and enjoys fly-fishing in addition to spending time at family homes in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and Montana.
