Before and Beyond College Spark:

Christine joined College Spark in 1999 and previously served as our general counsel. Prior to joining College Spark, Christine was a partner at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, working primarily on finance and commercial transactions. Christine received her Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Seattle University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Lewis and Clark College, Oregon. Her relationship with College Spark goes back to its beginning, when its predecessor Washington Guaranteed Student Loan Association helped put her through college. She is a volunteer with Wayfind (formerly Washington Attorneys Assisting Community Organizations). When she's not working, Christine is usually burying her mistakes in a compost pile.
