Christine Eads hosted a daily talk and entertainment radio program, Broadminded, on XM Radio's Take 5 Channel. Then on SiriusXM Stars Channel 107 from October 2005 – March 2013.

Christine launched The Mom Squad Show in January 2014 with Kyra Philips and Chaz Kelly. The show is a daily podcast that comments on parenting and family issues.

Eads has worked in a wide range of jobs in television, radio, and stage. This has included commercials, voice-over work, and as a traffic reporter. She has also hosted the Washington DC show Hot on Homes seen on WUSA Channel 9. Prior to hosting Broadminded, Eads worked as a traffic reporter for XM Radio covering the Los Angeles and Detroit areas.[1]

In 2001 she starred in the controversial film The Profit as Leland Conrad Powers' wife, Helen Hughes. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was banned from release by court order in 2002 due to legal action by the Church of Scientology.

Eads is also the founder of The Duffy House, a nonprofit organization which helps survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

Eads is the executive director of Rachel's Well, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The mission of Rachel's Well is to empower and connect a community to advance the health and well-being of women and girls with Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI). POI is a rare disease affecting about 1 in 10,000 girls and young women by the age of 20. Christine was diagnosed with POI in early 2000 while participating in a protocol at the National Institutes of Health. Since being diagnosed with the disorder she has been an advocate for this disease. She is currently participating in a clinical trial involving genomic medicine at the National Institutes of Health. The collaboration with Washington University Saint Louis is conducting a natural history study investigating the interface of patient care and research in the genomic age.

By the time she was 31 years old, Christine faced two blows to her reproductive and mental health. First, in her early 20s, she was violently sexually assaulted. Her attacker was never found. Then, a few years later, she was told she would never be able to have children due to primary ovarian insufficiency (POI).

Christine has one 14-year-old son named Aidan.
