Christine Weaver-Crafton was born in California and raised throughout the United States and Germany as her family moved around quite a bit. She studied Business and Social Science at Liberty University where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies. She resides outside Raleigh, North Carolina. Prior to working for Universal Consulting Services, Inc as a contractor with the Navy, Christine worked on the FBI CODIS project where she enjoyed combining science of DNA technology with instructional design and helping people to learn how to use the software properly. Christine started her career in Training in 1996 when her Director and Coach gave her the opportunity to break out of being an Administrative Assistant, and begin meeting with Medicare Supplemental recipients to understand how to utilize their insurance benefits. At that moment, the jigsaw pieces fit, and she realized Training Delivery and Instructional Design was not just a career, but a passion. She now enjoys expanding on those roles incorporating coaching, performance improvement and all the areas that talent development includes. In 2017 she pursued and completed her CPLP Certification.
