NHPR’s Membership, Corporate Sponsorship, and Major Giving divisions and serve as a key member of the leadership team. 

“I’m excited to join the development team at NHPR and build on the foundation of support for NHPR: board members, sustainers, members and soon-to-be-members,” Christine says. “I look forward to advancing the mission of NHPR, bringing trustworthy journalism to communities throughout New Hampshire and beyond.”

Christine has spent most of her life in New Hampshire, split between the North Country and the Lakes Region. She has worked as a development professional for the past 32 years, ensuring academic and other non-profit institutions have the resources they need.

Through the important work of development, her expertise and vision are visible across New Hampshire and the entire New England region.

“In Christine, we’ve found an inspiring leader who knows New Hampshire and cares deeply about our state and NHPR’s public service mission,” said Jim Schachter, NHPR’s president and chief executive officer. “Her skills and background in building and growing successful giving programs will be vital to fulfilling that mission.”
