If it has a logo, ink, pixels or pictures, chances are Christine played a part in making it come to life. As the head of Waterloo’s on-campus creative agency for everything brand-related, she’s earned campus-wide respect for her creativity and strategic thinking. She’s a big reason this special school has forged a unique identity while staying true to its values.
