About Oxygen Plus
Oxygen Plus (O+) is pure recreational oxygen – ALL DAY ENERGY® and recovery – that’s breathed through your mouth or nose from a lightweight, hand-held canister. An enriched, convenient source of the body’s natural and most prolific source of energy, O+ oxygen provides portable, natural energy and recovery on-demand – helping restore depleted oxygen levels to optimal levels. Sub-optimal oxygen levels can occur when you travel, drink alcohol, vigorously exercise, study or work too long, or are exposed to poor indoor or outdoor air quality and higher elevation. As multiple clinical studies show, Oxygen Plus tops off your oxygen levels – helping active people of all ages think, feel and perform their best.

Christine graduated with a B.A. in Psychology (1969) from Arizona State University in three years, after which she was welcomed to join the thought-leading graduate school of psychology at the University of Minnesota. After becoming a licensed marital and family therapist (LMFT, 1980) and licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW, 1971), Christine established a private psychotherapy practice in Edina, Minnesota, working with individuals, families and schools. She led incest survivor groups, men’s groups and women’s groups – offering clinical presentations as an expert on these topics.
With experience in both intrapersonal work and businesses, in 1990 she launched a business consultation practice, Organizational Design Strategies, which specializes in trans-generational leadership for a wide range of industries for family businesses, leadership teams, executive coaching and empowerment in the workplace. Inspired by the need to develop a new wellness product category, in 2003 Christine founded, and currently serves as President of the leading recreational oxygen company, Oxygen Plus (oxygenplus.com).
A teacher in action, Christine embraces education at all levels. In 2008, she built and co-founded a private elementary school, which later became the Moab Charter School. This was the first alternative option for education ever offered in Moab, Utah. In 1998, Christine also co-owned and founded Aakers College in North Dakota, with Fargo and Bismark locations. These schools were acquired by Rasmussen College (and later King’s College) years later. She also taught family and marital therapy at the graduate level, and served as a consultant to the Minnesota State Commissioner of Education and her cabinet, superintendents and principals throughout the United States.
