Membership Information



Christine has been at MIT in the IT department since 1994. In her most recent position as Manager for Strategic Communications for Information Services and Technology (IS&T) at MIT, she is responsible for both internal communications for the department and external communications to the MIT community, their clients, vendors and the world. She also works closely with the Head of Information Services and Technology (IS&T) at MIT on strategy and planning for the organization. Much of her experience has been to bridge boundaries and to cultivate and maintain relationships within IS&T, between IS&T and other MIT departments and between MIT and other universities.

Prior to joining MIT, Christine worked as a Business Controller for four years at Coral Networks (a start-up corporation) and before that spent six years at Wang Laboratories as a Financial Analyst.

Christine has been actively involved in the higher education community with NERCOMP, the Boston Consortium, and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). She has been involved with NERCOMP as MIT’s Institutional Representative (IR); as a collaborator with board members; on the annual SIG planning meeting; and on outreach and promotion of NERCOMP at MIT. She also is very involved with the Boston Consortium and in 2007 worked with several Boston Consortium members (who are also NERCOMP colleagues) to launch an IT and Libraries Communications Community of Practice which meets quarterly. She is a 2009 graduate from the Susan Vogt Leadership Fellows program with the Boston Consortium and a 2007 graduate from the CASE Summer Institute in Communications and Marketing with CASE.

Christine received an AS from Marian Court Junior College of Business in 1984 and a BS in Accountancy from Bentley in 1991.
