Christine Domingo, BA

Project Coordinator 

A native Washingtonian, Christine has always been compelled to help people. After graduating from Western Washington University in Communication and minor in Sociology, she caught the travel bug and moved to Asia to teach English and explore the other side of the world. Christine has written for numerous company blogs and produced content for both online and television. As the third member of the Shift-Results team, she found a company that aligns with her own personal mission to make a difference. When she’s not busy providing support, creativity and comic relief to the Shift-Results team, she’s chasing after her active two year old daughter, eating her way through Seattle with her husband, and cuddling with her dog.
