Christine Fonner has traveled the world in search of purpose and excitement. From the age of 15, she’s been taking solo trips to experience adventure, meet new people and understand the world around her. With a degree in Elementary Education, a Masters in School Building Leadership and several years as a project manager and executive assistant, Christine has a varied and eclectic toolbox of skills that has allowed her to develop a unique leadership approach.
After packing up her belongings in her Honda Civic moving from Seattle to New York in 2005, she started the largest and most successful book club in Westchester County that created a community of women and a fantastic environment for conversation, reflection and participation. With over 82 active members, 175 total members, and several community outreach programs within the book club, members found a place of long-term friendship in a place that can sometimes be difficult to find and make friends.
Christine has led several leadership workshops, developed and coordinated youth and adult conferences and is an over all amazing “planner.” She has a knack for bringing people together, speaking to your spirit and creating a clear and meaningful purpose in what she says.
