Christine O'BrienChristine O’Brien
Public Information Officer

Christine O’Brien joined the D2 team in 2012 after serving 20 years in the nonprofit community of Colorado Springs. She has filled the roles of Development Director, Chief of Staff, and now the Public Information Officer for the District. Christine’s passion for connecting the community to D2’s awesomeness, mentoring students and staff, and working with the media and the Communications Department to share all the positive stories happening in the District bring her great joy.

Sometimes described as an extroverted introvert, Christine works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that others are recognized for their contributions to the D2 success story. She works collaboratively with her staff and the Executive Team to elevate others and serve departments and schools. 

Christine believes in being of service and currently represents the District on three nonprofit boards: Chairman of The UC Health Southern Colorado Foundation Board, The Colorado Springs Conservatory Board, and the Mindfulness and Positivity Project Board. She also actively volunteers with groups she believes in! 

When Christine isn’t working or serving locally, she is all about her family. She and her husband, Paul, enjoy their two adult children, Christine’s parents, and a big Irish family. They can be found enjoying mountain time most weekends, whether hiking, fly fishing, or skiing.
