Coalition Staff Members
Originally from Missoula, Montana, Christine relocated to the Seattle area after almost a decade working in fundraising and nonprofit leadership in the “other” Washington. She started at the Coalition as the Director of Philanthropy and was appointed to the role of Executive Director in February 2018.
Christine has led fundraising efforts for causes ranging from international affairs to money-in-politics reform, with a special emphasis on relationship management and working with broad ranging coalitions and boards.
Christine grew up loving the outdoors. As a child, you could usually find her outside, whether that was playing competitive soccer throughout the Northwest; hiking, camping, and horseback riding in Montana’s wilderness; floating the Blackfoot on rafts and tubes; helping her mom in the garden; or just playing in the yard or the neighborhood parks. Today, she is passionate about ensuring all Washingtonians are able to experience similar wonders, whether that’s nurturing a garden P-Patch, walking your dog in the park, or backpacking in the backcountry.
In her free time, Christine enjoys gardening, reading, cooking & baking (especially sourdough), watching soccer (she’s an unapologetic DC United supporter!), and exploring all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, hiking and running with her dogs, Nitro and Tahoma, by her side.

Isaac grew up in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary in Central Massachusetts and has called Florida, Colorado, and Oregon home for significant periods of time before finding his way to the Coalition. In each place, the wilderness has been his place of refuge and solace. This connection to our natural world has been the driving force for Isaac every step of the way. As a result, Isaac has attained a Bachelor’s in Environmental Science and Policy as well as a Master’s of Nonprofit Management. In his free time, Isaac seeks the outdoors as his outlet taking part in activities like hiking with his dog, backcountry camping, golfing, bouldering, and finding the perfect spot for his hammock. He dreams of thru-hiking the Pacific Coast Trail someday.
