Christine has spent the past 12 years cooking, having an absolute passion for food, wine, and everything in between. She is a self-taught chef who has worked in restaurants from a young age and has been surrounded by some incredible and well-respected chefs in the industry. She believes that going to restaurant or having a dinner should be an experience.

Believing in a "farm to fork" and "ocean to plate" philosophy, Christine uses everything that the island of Nantucket provides for The ACK Experience. She spends her time cooking, menu planning, managing staff, building and fostering relationships with farms, sourcing food from local farmers markets and local farms, and delivering food to clients.

The ACK Experience specializes in creating experiences that you will remember during your short stay or seasonal stay on Nantucket. The ACK Experience offers culinary bike tours, private chef-led dinners, oyster & wine cocktail parties by the shore, porch or poolside! With The ACK Experience your guide, you can take advantage of all that Nantucket has to offer, explore its culinary specialities and eat delicious local food. In addition, Christine works with Nantucket Blooms, harvesting crops for local restaurants, like Ventuno, Straight Wharf Restaurant, and American Seasons. Christine is also involved with the Sustainable Nantucket Organization.

During the off season, Christine resides and works in Boston, employing the same philosophy with her clients in the New England and Mid-Atlantic areas. Her focus over this time has been on local, sustainable farming and sourcing of food/products in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and the Hudson Valley.

Christine has been building and fostering relationships with small farms in the New England Area, sourcing all of her food from local farmers markets to local farms (including seafood), and delivering food to her clients. Some of these farms included Astarte Farm (Amherst), Stillman Farm (Hardwick), Boisvert Farm (South Hadley), Red Fire Farm (Granby), cheese purveyors such as Robinson Farms (Hardwick), Smith Country Cheese (Winchendon), Shady Oaks Organics (Newburyport), Nantucket Oysters, Island Creek Oysters, Clams, Mussels (Duxbury), Cellars at Jasper Hill (VT), artisan breadmakers Rose 32 (Hardwick), and Oak Summit Vineyard (NY).
