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.

Chris LiesHorses 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.
