Meet the Team

Meet Chris.

Chris graduated from Clemson University (Go Tigers!) in Clemson, SC, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Packaging Science. She worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a packaging engineer before NCRT and has valuable hands-on experience in child-resistant package design. With a focus on good manufacturing practices (GMPs), Chris’s skills in project management, package validation, and management of material quality leave NCRT customers in great hands.

Her package engineering expertise helps NCRT customers trouble -shoot package designs in the development phase, saving clients valuable time and resources. She also manages onsite child testing, educating customers exactly on how children are able to manipulate the packaging design, while offering solutions for improvement.

In her free time Chris enjoys running and biking, as well as throwing herself into a good book. She can often be found watching her kids participate in activities, biking for coffee or visiting with family. She volunteers at People's City Mission and Matt Talbot Kitchen, as well as with various activities with her church. Chris enjoys traveling, especially to the coast or mountains and wherever she can cheer on the Clemson Tigers.
