Christine earned her B.S. in Accounting from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and is a Certified Public Accountant in New Jersey.  


Ms. Dye will be employed by the Company at-will and shall receive $220,000 per annum for her services and is eligible for a discretionary bonus of up to 10% of her annual salary.
