Christy was born and raised in Atlanta.  She went to college in California at Stanford University and spent a year teaching English in Chile.  Since returning, she has taught in several schools in the Atlanta area, and she is happy to have found a welcoming community of teachers, staff, and students here at English for Internationals.

When not teaching, Christy can be found spending time with her husband and her son, Jackson, who was born in November 2015.  Reading and watching British period dramas on TV are two of her favorite hobbies.  She hopes one day to have more time to travel and learn new languages.
