Christine Preston joined GLBRC in March of 2023 as the Administrative Director. She brings efficient and creative professional skills to leadership, fundraising and grant management. Preston has an extensive history working in higher education, including years of experience at other schools and departments at UW–Madison.
Christine is originally from Wyoming, but has adopted Wisconsin as her beloved home. She misses the Rocky Mountains but a trip or two out west each year help satisfy that calling. She has two grown sons; Cody and his wife Claudia live in rural Marshfield, WI with a goal of boarding horses, and her younger son Ben is enjoying exploring the hiking and biking trails of northern WI. Christine and her husband, Kevin, love to travel, watch Badger sports, try new foods, and check out local breweries!
