Christine started out in the tourism industry following her graduation from Cathal Brugha Street, and then spent many years with Sheraton Hotels in the United States. She moved into the tech industry in a marketing capacity, but the call back to the tourism industry was too strong for her to resist. Today, Christine works across all business tourism niches – corporate, incentive and association – providing the marketing support needed to continue to promote Ireland as a world-class business tourism destination. “I’m from Dublin originally, and although I spent several years in Boston, Ireland will always be home for me. I’m fiercely proud of my Irish roots and am passionate about our beautiful green emerald isle. I’m from the Northside of Dublin so I enjoy cliff walks in Howth, wandering around the lovely village of Malahide or taking a spin out to vibrant Skerries.” “Food is a passion too, and I love nothing more than sampling some of the beautiful food and wine on offer in some of the best restaurants around. In particular, I love local seafood paired with good wine. These days the opportunity to dine out is less frequent and weekends are spent entertaining little people – another passion, of course!” Christine has completed the PCMA Digital Event Strategist (DES) Certification and is passionate about all things digital. She is also Cvent Supplier Certified.
