Christine Burrows

Woo | Communication | Connectedness | Positivity | Activator


Christine is the Vice President of Strategy and Operations for Powered by Purple Ink. Although she is not an HR professional, she is definitely a people person. She spent the first half of her career in education as a high school history teacher and then in curriculum development for television and web, and then went on to become a content marketer – mostly for SaaS companies. All along, she’s been a consummate connector – whether between people and content or between people and people. She holds the people industry close to her heart because many of her dearest friends are People Pros and she gets to help them connect with clients and grow their businesses. Her top 5 Clifton Strengths are Woo, Communication, Connectivity, Activator and Positivity – all of which she gets to use to facilitate the birth and growth of Powered by Purple Ink as it becomes the go-to network for anyone in the people industry.

Outside of work, Christine enjoys playing tennis and pickleball, reading, walking, and lunching with friends. She is married with four adult children spread across the country, and she, her husband, and their dog Louie bi-locate between Carmel, IN and Carolina Beach, NC.
