She has a deep understanding of chronic pain, energetic dysfunction, and the challenges and gifts inherent in illness.  At the age of 38, in the prime of her family life and career, Chris became ill for several years with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which led her to a broad exploration of complementary therapies and their effective integration with conventional care.  She has now regained optimal health, and her purpose is to share her experience and learning with others.

Chris has one daughter, Danielle, 30, and lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  She enjoys tennis, skiing, tai chi, and ballroom dance in her leisure hours.
