Christine has nearly twenty years of experience in B2B marketing communications and media relations for life sciences organizations.

Christine began her career as a research scientist after earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in cell biology. With a passion for the science but not for life in the lab, she completed her M.B.A., and departed the lab bench for the field of marketing communications. She spent time as marketing communications director at a number of Boston area life sciences companies prior to joining FKH in 2006.

As Senior Vice President of Marketing Communications at FKH, Christine conceptualizes and oversees the branding, positioning and implementation of strategic, integrated marketing communications and media relations programs for our clients. Her expertise spans the entire brand development and demand generation spectrum and includes product launches, market research, measurement and metrics, and the development of marketing collateral, technical literature, newsletters, websites and annual reports.

Christine’s clients have included both global and emerging life sciences companies as well as pharmaceutical, biotech, medical diagnostic and device companies, and contract research organizations.

Christine is also an adjunct professor at the Institute for Executive Education, Suffolk University, teaching graduate level courses in marketing communications.
