Co-Founder • Executive Director
A multidisciplinary strategist and leader, Christine has 20 years of experience working at the intersection of design, research, communications, and capacity building.
Christine co-founded Loup in 2017, building on Facilitating Change, an independent consultancy launched in 2005. She has worked in the private sector, for government and international agencies, and with university research centers and foundations.
A large part of Christine’s career has focused on international development, working on health, digital development, governance, civil society, and private sector development projects. Prior to founding Loup, Christine spent two years working with the World Bank Group, serving as a Human-Centered Design Advisor for the IFC’s Gender Secretariat, providing research and open innovation advisory services for the World Bank Innovation Labs, and supporting Leadership & Learning initiatives. While working with the Mozilla Foundation, Christine co-invented StoryEngine, a narrative-based methodology that generates powerful communication assets, surfaces insights to guide strategy and design decisions, and facilitates learning and innovation. Previous clients/employers have included Deloitte, IREX, Abt Associates, Canada’s International Development Research Centre, the University of Washington’s Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA), and the University of Maryland (IRIS Center).
Christine seeks to cultivate empathy and unpack assumptions in all of her work, is a certified design sprint facilitator, and holds an MA in Public Communication. She lives in Washington DC with her husband and Greta, a very spoiled red Doberman.
