Christine King, B.A.S.W., has been involved in various disability and justice related initiatives for over 25 years. She graduated from the University of Maine, Orono with a Bachelors Degree in Social Work and immediately began her professional career in our majestic state in 1994. Ms. King has worked for non-profits such as the Arc of Anchorage, Access Alaska, and Easter Seals; the State of Alaska’s Division of Public Assistance and Department of Labor; and spent 15 years at the University of Alaska’s Center for Human Development. She has served on the Governor’s Council on Disabilities and Special Education, Anchorage’s ADA Advisory Commission, and the Victims for Justice and the Special Education Service Agency boards. She has had the great privilege to travel all over Alaska and partner with local and state programs who make a difference in improving the lives of Alaskans who experience disabilities. In 2015, Ms. King was selected to participate in the Justice Strand for the National Goals in Research, Policy, and Practice in Washington D.C. to address justice issues impacting individuals who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities for her work on implementing Disability Abuse Response Teams (DART) in Alaska.
Ms. King is semi-retired living the “Big Wild Alaska Life” with her husband William Murphy in Eagle River. Currently, she not only proudly serves on the One2One Mentorship Board, but is a volunteer mentor for an amazing mentee who is pursuing her college degree at UAA. Ms. King is also a Volunteer Long Term Care Ombudsman with the State of Alaska’s Office of Long Term Care Ombudsman ensuring residents who live in assisted living facilities are treated with dignity and respect.
Ms. King firmly believes in the power of mentorship and how it improves the quality of life of a mentee. Ms. King has been blessed to be mentored by Leslie Myers of the Vera Institute of Justice and Patti Bland, formerly with the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (ANDVSA) and the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health. She credits these two remarkable women for shaping her world view and defining how her individual contribution can, and does, make a difference.
