What people are saying…

“Christine has provided the United Montessori Schools of Indiana not only a framework for bringing our vision of advocacy work in the state of Indiana to life, she has guided us through the entire process. We are seeing our hard work and goals come to fruition. The Board of Directors has said many times, we could not have completed this work without Christine’s passion, organization, and knowledge! She has been, and continues to be, a joy to work with.”
— Brenda Huth, UMSI Board Secretary

“Working with someone as experienced, patient, and knowledgeable as Christine has allowed our state organization to advocate for Montessori in a highly professional and efficient manner. She has guided us through the Validation Project with ease and enthusiasm. As a board member she brings thoughtful and thorough discourse to the group.”
— Jaime Yeager, Executive Director, Montessori Alliance of Tennessee

“Christine attends to the details and keeps the follow-through going with efficiency, grace and courtesy. Our work (with the Montessori Validation project) was so much easier as Christine could provide so many templates of documents and communications that we could simply tweak and customize to our needs. Availing of her broad experience helped us to move forward effectively (as we are not inventing the wheel)!”
— Paula Leigh-Doyle, Ohio Montessori Alliance
