Christy is originally from Southern California and has lived in New Mexico, Utah, Missouri and Texas before moving to New Orleans in the fall of 2009. She loves the vibrant culture of the city and the welcoming nature of the South, and enjoys not having to scrape ice off her windshield in the winter. When she is not restructuring processes and supervising staff, she spends her time taking classes, reading, cooking, working on her house, and enjoying new restaurants.
