Christine moved to Chester in 2004 and was seeking an art and music program for her youngest son. Jane Shatz warmly welcomed them into the wonderful world of MCAW first as a participant and shortly thereafter as a volunteer.
As a volunteer, Christine organized the MCAW Waiting Room which hosts parents, teens and seniors to supervise the MCAW students in the Chester schools before, in-between and after their classes and lessons. Also, she was the co-coordinator for the MCAW sponsored Music & Art Appreciation Program in the Chester elementary schools which brought parent volunteers into the classrooms to share various music and art styles with the students.
Since the fall of 2009, Christine is the Program Coordinator/Director of MCAW-Chester. She is involved in the development of new programs offered, management of the Chester teachers, communications with parents of students and the scheduling of private instruction.
Christine resides in Chester with her husband, two sons, mother, mother-in-law (half the year) and an assortment of pets. Prior to MCAW she managed a surgical practice, was a small business owner and was a substitute teacher.
