Chrystine is an advocate at heart who combines skills in opinion research, a calling as a nurse and experience as a strategist. She built a career on listening to others - through formal research and other stakeholder engagement - to raise their voices and offer evidence that makes an impact on health. Chrystine is trusted as counsel to some of the world's largest biopharmaceutical companies, health systems, provider and patient organizations and non-profits - and she is most proud of the work she does to recognize the integral role of nurses, the essential value of vaccines and the ability of patients to be active decision-makers in their care.
Chrystine was a founding member of APCO Insight where she built a health-focused research capability. Her expertise has helped clients significantly improve communication and thought leadership through the use of rigorous opinion research. Chrystine created custom studies used a variety of research methodologies , as well as the firm's proprietary research models, and was the lead researcher of numerous publicly available research reports on timely health topics.
Chrystine continues her nursing practice through volunteerism in Guatemala with Mayanza, an organization focused on transforming communities by improving the health of school-aged children and their mothers. Also, she supports vaccine clinics run by her local public health department.
Chrystine is a constant, active learner. She holds a BA in Political Science from Marist College, a BS in Nursing from George Mason University, a MA in Survey Research Methodology from the University of Connecticut and is a current student at Rutgers University School of Public Health.
