Christine is a lover of chocolate and coffee, a mother to 4 humans and 3 furbabies. She is a survivor of her illness, Bipolar II. She is a Human Resource professional and has worked all her adult life despite having a mental illness. In 2010 after being admitted to a psychiatric hospital she was diagnosed with Bipolar II. That event began a journey of healing and lots of research on her illness. After a long hard battle, today Christine is now deemed stable and her bipolar is in remission. Although she still doesn’t have it all figured out she continues to grow and learn how to cope with her illness. Her favorite past times are drinking coffee and long walks with her maltese Apple Jax, who serves as her emotional support dog. When she isn’t busy with her family she loves posting words of inspiration on her Facebook Page Pepper Vintage.
