Christine met her husband Kevin at MSU and they married in 1997. She was awarded a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University Law School 1998.

During Dental School, Kevin joined the Navy. Multiple moves including to California, Maryland, Japan, and Illinois, and a demanding residency for Kevin resulted in Christine sacrificing her career to support their family which ultimately included three children: Canyon, Emory, and Georgia.

Upon Kevin’s separation from the Navy, the Morse family settled in Kalamazoo where they have lived since 2010.

In 2018 Christine ran a successful campaign for Kalamazoo County Commissioner of District 9.
