Christen Spencer has been in sleep for 10 years and is currently the manager for the Center for Interdisciplinary Sleep Research and Education (CISRE) at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Christen started off her sleep career in Richmond, VA and has also worked in Delaware. She served as an instructor for the first CAAHEP-accredited Polysomnography program in the Mid-Atlantic (the Community College of Baltimore County).
Since her desire is to stay local to the Mid-Atlantic, Christen became actively involved with the Maryland Sleep Society in 2010. She has served on the Board of Directors and as Secretary for the organization. She is currently the President-elect for the society and is dedicated to continuing to promote the importance of sleep as a profession in Maryland. In addition to her role as a research sleep manager, Christen will complete her RN this May. Her plan is to add the RN to her sleep portfolio in order to continue increasing our knowledge of the science of sleep and be on the forefront of new methods for treating sleeping disorders.
Christen currently spends her time between Baltimore and Richmond, VA. Christen’s family includes an energetic two- year old son (Henry) who is her pride and joy. Christen also enjoys running and cycling and will be completing her fourth marathon in November 2014.
