Spotlight Story

Christine is a Collegeville Borough resident whose interesting roster of former careers—from programming and analysis to balloon artistry work—has given her a unique perspective and groundwork both for her business as an empty nest coach and here at Ursinus.

After her daughter headed off to college four years early, Christine took her experience as an “empty nester” and turned it into a passion. She now runs a coaching program, website and podcast called “Your Empty Nest Coach.”

“I coach women who are freaking out about entering the empty nest,” she shared, adding, I found my friends came to me for advice and support. Eventually, I decided to give coaching a go. Out of that came my online coaching program, the podcast, retreats and more. In the last year, I’ve met podcasters from all over the world and have assisted clients that I’ve never met in real life.”

Christine also has a penchant for fire building, which is one of her favorite things to do on retreats—teaching women how to start a fire from a spark.

Her favorite thing about working at Ursinus is the people she works with and how they inspire and encourage her in all she does.
