Christine McPherson, Development Director

Christine is the Development Director of White Coat Waste Project (WCW). She comes to WCW from the non-profit sector where she has been working in donor relations since 2017.

Christine is focused on creating life-long relationships with our donors and growing our major gifts program to help WCW save lives and clean up government waste. Christine is excited to be part of WCW because no other organization brings together so many vast ideologies around a common message: the government has no business testing on animals, and taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to pay for it.

Christine knew she wanted to advocate for animals at a young age after watching Legally Blonde 2 and learning about the plight of animals in cosmetic testing. After taking a class in lobbying for animals in her certificate program she knew she needed to pursue a degree in politics. She graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Philosophy and has a certificate in Animal Advocacy from Hudson Valley Community College. She previously worked at Young Americans For Liberty, FreedomWorks, and Students For Liberty to fight for freedom by raising funds and organizing events.

In her free time, you can catch Christine hiking nearby trails, baking delicious treats, or exploring towns nearby. She lives in the greater Washington, DC area with her husband, Bill, their daughters, Brianna and Fiona, and their senior rescue dog, Ulysses.
