FOUNDER & CEO
A fourth-generation Texan, Christine built her first bonafide village on the family ranch at age 10—a prelude to her degree in architectural design at the University of Texas Austin, studies in Denmark, and quest to form thriving communities on small footprints.
Christine arrived in Oregon at the start of 1999, embarking on a 20-year career as an architect. Combining curiosities about tempering chocolate and a marketplace limited to cannabis-butter treats wrapped in cellophane, Christine applied her rich understanding of thoughtful proportions and composition to start Grön in 2014.
She cashed out her architecture firm stock options to purchase a chocolate machine, hired the perfect team, and the rest is history. What started as one delicately nuanced dark chocolate bar has grown to multiple product lines available across the US and Canada.
