Christine is a Chartered Banker and Chartered Accountant, who has audited a range of businesses from small enterprises to Public Limited Companies. A graduate in Sciences from Cambridge University, Christine has lectured in both science and commerce at the now University of Westminster and St Andrew's Private Tutorial Centre in Cambridge.
Christine became a treasurer of the RSPCA Central London Branch in 1997 and was the driving force behind the design and build of their innovative inner city animal centre. She also drove the development of a 365-days-a-year outreach programme helping 1,600 of the most needy inner city animals from the most deprived areas of the capital every year.
Christine specialises in rescuing and rehoming timid and feral cats who would not cope well in a cattery and are very difficult to medicate and socialise. She also set up the country's largest free neutering for cats scheme which has neutered more than 125,000 needy cats to date and prevented many thousands of unwanted kittens being born into an uncertain future.
Christine joined the council five years ago and became National Treasurer in July 2015. She is the regional representative for London.
