As CEO and co-owner, Christine manages and directs MAD Scientist Associates, LLC, a central Ohio wetland and ecological consulting firm that provides services throughout Ohio and the Midwest. Prior to joining MAD was a seven-year career at Battelle in the world of scientific consulting — building relationships with clients, promoting company capabilities, proposal development, research, and project reporting. Additionally, in 2019 Christine became a co-owner of Scioto Gardens Nursery, which specializes in native plants, found in Delaware, Ohio. Her B.S. degree was earned at The Ohio State University and her MBA at Franklin University.
The Conscious Capitalism’s philosophy that businesses should serve all significant stakeholders, including the environment, fit well with MAD’s philosophy of operation over the course of their 23+ years in business. So, joining the Columbus Conscious Capitalism Chapter was a natural fit. Christine also currently serves as Vice President of Communications on the NAWBO Columbus Board of Directors. In 2020, MAD was honored to be Westerville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year and Green Columbus’ GreenSpotLight Small Business Winner. Christine and her MAD team strive to Make A Difference in the community. In her spare time, Christine enjoys genealogy research, gardening, and taking walks.
