Christine has worked in the financial services industry since 2000. She focuses her practice on working with individuals that are in the various stages of divorce. Christine is committed to building relationships with various experts in the field of Family Law in order to help individuals achieve the most advantageous financial settlement possible. She leverages the vast network of specialists within Merrill to help clients explore a wide range of possible strategies.
Christine holds the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) designation. As a CDFA, she analyzes the financial issues of divorce and helps clients and their lawyers understand the short-term and long-term impacts of proposed divorce settlements. After a divorce is finalized, she works with clients to develop detailed household budgets, plan for their children’s education needs as well as their own retirement planning. When clients have a clear understanding of how to manage their new financial circumstances, they generally feel less anxiety about the future and tend to have a higher satisfaction level with the results of the divorce process.
Prior to her current role, Christine has held several positions within Merrill including a role on the High Yield Institutional Sales Desk. As a member of the Institutional Structured Investments Desk, she was responsible for creating and marketing Equity, Currency, Commodity & Fixed Income linked products to various institutions. Most recently, Christine was a member of the Portfolio Strategies Desk. In this role, she provided guidance on investment strategies and a wide range of products in a portfolio context including Equities, ETFs, Structured Investments & Alternative Investments. Prior to joining Merrill, Christine held a sales role at MFS Investment Management.
Christine graduated from Lehigh University with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Psychology. She lives in Basking Ridge, New Jersey with her husband, daughter and two sons.
Christine values giving back to her community. She frequently volunteers her time to help women organize their finances at the Jersey Battered Women’s Service (JBWS). Christine serves as a Board member for the Treehouse Preschool, a mission of the Presbyterian church of Basking Ridge.
