Christine Buckley

Vice President, Fiduciary Adviser
PNC Bank

buckley-christinemf07Christine Buckley learned the value of hard work growing up on a farm in central Pennsylvania, where her parents worked several jobs. Now Buckley said she brings that same grit and dedication to her work for her clients at PNC Bank.

“I am challenged every day to find new ways to meet and exceed my clients’ goals,” said Buckley, who has a law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law and a Master of Laws in Taxation from the Georgetown University Law Center. “I work with clients to develop, implement and execute the terms of their financial and estate plans by always acting in their best interests and helping them achieve financial piece of mind and meet their goals.”

Buckley is involved in several volunteer organizations, including the United Way of Central Maryland and Pratt Contemporaries. For the United Way, she has mulched, weeded and planted potatoes at the Filbert Street Garden and helped pack 500 summer bags for at-risk children to engage in activities during the summer. She also raised $925, topping her goal of $375, for a summer reading program through Pratt Contemporaries. Her efforts supported the cost of reading materials for 12 children.

“My philanthropic commitment to the community is driven by the desire to do the right thing and engage in activities that will make our community better than it was the day before,” she said. “All we can do to bring about change is keep showing up and making small differences.”
