Christine is also a survivor of multiple crimes, including an experience involving both ecclesiastic abuse and human trafficking.

She has appeared on Vice, Think Utah, Escaping Polygamy, and others.

Christine has expertise in helping the public understand the nexus between coercive, totalitarian polygamy and human trafficking. However, she is adamant that this type of polygamy does not represent all polygamy, and has many friends who are happy in their polygamist relationships. She has long advocated for the trafficking organizations to include “religion” in their descriptions about the many ways human trafficking can take take place.
