Christine embarked on her journey in the realm of accounting in 1998, following a valuable three-year tenure as a Revenue Agent at the Internal Revenue Service – an experience that provided her with exceptional tax training. Joining Withum that same year, she became an integral part of their tax department, where her expertise extended to various tax return categories, including business, individual, payroll, sales tax, and not-for-profit.
During her time at Withum, Christine delved into trust/estate/gift tax work, eventually honing her specialization in this area when she transitioned to EisnerAmper (formerly Amper, Politziner & Mattia) in 2005. This move marked her formal commitment to specializing in trust and estate. Subsequently, she further expanded her career by joining FMTRL in 2010, which later merged with PKF O’Connor Davies in 2014.
Throughout her professional journey, Christine maintained her focus on trust/estate/gift work, and by 2019, she had ascended to the role of Partner-in-Charge of the Trust and Estate Department at PKF O’Connor Davies. Her expertise covered a spectrum of clients, ranging from moderate to ultra-high-net-worth, and spanned both domestic and international trust and estate matters.
