See What Our Values Mean to Christine+


Integrity to me means giving honest opinions, setting realistic expectations and staying true to my word. This means not telling people what they want to hear, but working as hard as possible to be able to deliver on promises.


Excellence, in my opinion, is all about effort. Many tasks can be completed in a number of different ways, but in order to achieve excellence we have to think strategically, put in the time and work necessary to succeed, and in some cases, fail and start over.


Success is about more than the end result, it is also a feeling. When we’ve succeeded there is a sense of accomplishment and pride, along with measurable results.
