Christine joined UNC Charlotte in November of 2014. As a Lead Investigator, Christine is responsible for investigating reports of alleged violations of UNC Charlotte’s Code of Student Responsibility pertaining to Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act and violations of Title VII. The reports may include allegations of sexual misconduct, relationship violence, sex and gender based harassment and stalking involving UNC Charlotte students, staff and faculty members. She will conduct a prompt and thorough investigation, which includes: interviewing the identified complainant, respondent and witnesses, gathering and securing relevant documentation, and other forms of evidence. Christine acts as a neutral party and provides a detailed, unbiased report regarding the findings of the investigation.
Christine is from Wisconsin. She received a Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Prior to earning her master’s degree, Christine spent many years working as a child protective services investigator for two counties in Wisconsin. After earning her master’s degree, Christine continued her investigation work for the Minnesota Department of Education where she investigated public school employees who were accused of abusing or neglecting students. She was also employed as the Campus Violence Prevention Program Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Stout where her focus was on educating students, staff and faculty about sexual misconduct, relationship violence and stalking. Overall, she has nearly 20 years of experience as an investigator. Christine moved with her husband to the Charlotte area in October 2013 to avoid the cold and snowy winters in Wisconsin.
Christine is thrilled to be continuing her work as an investigator and looks forward to serving the UNC Charlotte community.
