BACKGROUND

During law school, Christine worked as an intern at Tahirih Justice Center in Falls Church, Virginia assisting immigrant women and girls fleeing gender based violence in their countries of origin. There she conducted substantial research on asylum and prepared applications for adjustment of status, a U visa, and asylee relative petitions. As a clinical student Christine represented a detained client seeking relief under the Convention Against Torture, including conducting a bond hearing in Immigration Court. She also drafted comments on behalf of the ABA regarding the proposed regulations to implement the Prison Rape Elimination Act in immigration detention centers.

Prior to attending law school, Christine lived in Benin, West Africa for two years as a small enterprise development Peace Corps Volunteer. There she established micro savings and loan associations for women’s groups in several small villages and organized a girls’ empowerment summer camp.

In her free time, Christine enjoys cycling, hiking, and snowboarding.
