Christine Searight joined the OAR Board of Directors in October 2014, when she was drawn to OAR’s mission & wanted to help reach a wider audience within the autism community. Christine partners with OAR to market the many wonderful resources the organization provides to help those affected by autism including parents, caregivers, and educators.
Christine is a marketing executive with more than 20 years of experience growing well-known brands like Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, and USA TODAY. She holds a BA in History and an MBA in Marketing from the George Washington University.
Christine grew up surrounded by medical professionals. Her father was a doctor, her mother was a nurse, and her brother is a clinical psychologist who spent many years working in a teaching hospital. Because of this, she has a natural curiosity about health-related issues, and a compelling desire to support organizations that advance knowledge and make a difference in the lives of so many people.
