Christine graduated in May of 2015 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mortuary Science and Funeral Service from Southern Illinois University. She knew from the first time setting foot in a funeral home that funeral service was her calling.

She comes to Walton’s with three and a half years of interning in funeral homes, has gained her Funeral Director’s license in the state of Nevada, and plans on obtaining her embalmer’s license as well.

As a transplant from Southern Illinois, Christine has been enjoying hiking in the mountains, exploring good fishing spots, and visiting Lake Tahoe as much as possible. Most of all, she enjoys time spent with her family and friends.
