Christine grew up in northwestern Wisconsin and has always been heavily immersed in the outdoors from a young age. Her dad is a wildlife biologist and this allowed her the opportunity to experience the outdoors from a unique perspective as a child. Christine enjoys hunting of all kinds, trout fishing, bass fishing, photography, gardening, quilting, and reading. She currently lives outside of New Auburn with her boyfriend of 12 years, their two English Setters, a cat, and homing pigeons
