My name is Christine Lies (Chris) and I am a Freelance Writer. In addition to holding degrees in Business, Economics and Political Science from Indiana University, I have received over 100 hours of training from Erickson College as part of The Art and Science of Coaching Program.
Prior to becoming a Freelance Writer, I spent 12 years working in the Financial Services industry for Arthur Andersen, Heller Financial and GE Capital. In 2002 I left GE Capital to form Fourth Quarter Consulting, working with clients such as JP Morgan, Sterling Capital and Continental Communities.
Horses have always been a part of my life. I grew up on seven acres with horses in the backyard. I have a successful record at the FEI level in Eventing and also compete in the hunter, jumper and dressage rings. Most days, I feel like an accomplished equestrian. Some days I am full of self-doubt and afraid to ask for help.
Keeping my priorities in focus and balancing all aspects of my life is a constant challenge.
