Hello! I'm Christine the founder of Galas + Grace, here to support you as you embark on your own personal growth journey.
My goal is to ignite and inspire people to practice self-care, elevate their wellbeing and create genuine connections in all areas of their life. Let me be your guide through challenging life transitions, shifts and changes. This journey will not be easy but I promise it will be life-changing. This is about stepping out of the mundane and into a world full of endless possibilities.
What started as a soul-centered event planning business has now flourished into an overarching lifestyle brand to include my own live events and other experiences such as Angel Card Readings and 1:1 support.
The original and core principle holds true --bring people together to ignite a conscious shift in thinking. The power to inspire and alter a person’s behavior, attitude and outlook on life can happen from just one experience.
Galas + Grace is inspired by my own spiritual practice and journey of self-discovery. Allowing for more love, connection, presence and heart-centered interactions in my day-to-day life ignites an even deeper passion to share my experience with others. My hope is to open you up to create transformational moments + experiences in your life as well.
Galas ~ embracing the experience of life on a daily basis with style, sophistication + beauty.
Grace ~ embodying divinity, purity, authenticity + spiritual transformation.
Welcome to a world of conscious living, wellness, beauty + live events grounded and centered in a deeper level of awareness!
Some fun facts.
Born and raised in NJ with strong ties to NYC's culture and lifestyle, I'm definitely a hybrid of the two. My all-time favorite movie is The Outsiders. My favorite comfort food is an Ecuadorian stew that I only eat maybe once a year. My go-to beauty tip is to always keep your eyebrows well maintained (they set the tone for your whole face). I love my morning meditation practice, vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and sprinkles (gluten-free of course), fall outings with my sister, Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathons, all things mystical (crystals, angel cards, astrology, numerology, energy healing, etc.), road trips listening to my Joe Mac playlist, music (pretty much all genres but especially 90's R&B/Hip Hop...it takes me back), and attending motivational events and workshops where I can continue to grow, learn and meet new people.
Thank you for visiting my little home on the internet.
Please reach out anytime. It would be really great to hear from you!
Christine is highly passionate, creative and extremely focused. After receiving a B.A. in Psychology from Syracuse University, she embarked on her first adventure and pursued a career in advertising. Her background is rooted in consumer packaged goods and pharmaceutical experience from partnering with clients such as Hershey, Microsoft, The J.M. Smucker Company, Unilever, McNeil, AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers, Sanofi-Aventis, and Kraft.
With 12+ years of proven agency experience leading integrated marketing platforms, Christine is skilled in cultivating and forging strong client and agency partnerships with expertise in advertising, strategic planning, shopper marketing, experiential and event marketing. Christine was also part of the founding TEDxHackensack team that successfully launched the first community-based TEDx event in Hackensack, NJ. Her goal was to create a unique, thought-provoking brand experience for TEDxHackensack participants that would inspire, motivate and drive creativity for future community platforms.
With a degree in psychology and an accomplished career in advertising, Christine is shifting her focus from developing marketing campaigns for big brands to making a more direct impact on a personal level. She feels called to share all her educational and professional experience combined with a very specific passion for a more mindful lifestyle approach.
Christine provides soul-centered guidance and support to those on the brink of their own spiritual awareness, blending her education in psychology, mindfulness tools, and intuitive practices. She works to provide structure to her clients by helping them dismantle the fears around life transitions and shifts in identity by getting comfortable in the uncertainty of the unknown.
Christine is motivated by soul-stirring experiences that push her out of her comfort zone, meeting like-minded people who continue to inspire and raise her to new levels, and the miracle of energy healing. Continuing down this path of personal growth and spiritual development, Christine completed the Spirit Junkie Master Class Level One Training with Gabrielle Bernstein.
Other inspirations come from decorating, DIY projects, dancing, travel, cosmic musings and walking around downtown NYC just roaming and exploring. One of her favorite vacation spots of all time is the South of France, especially St. Tropez. A Spirit Junkie at heart that enjoys her morning ritual of meditating, warm water with lemon and preparing for the day ahead in complete stillness.
