Christie is a native of Blue Ridge and absolutely loves living and working in this community! She has lived in several cities across the southeast but was drawn back to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains where she married her husband, Paul. Christie enjoys cooking (and eating fun meals!!), traveling, yoga, golf, and spending time outdoors. Christie is a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher, and you will periodically see her teaching in the community when time allows. In times of chaos, which the Chamber team knows very well, you may hear Christie say, “just breathe”! She loves leading an amazing staff and supporting the membership, partners, and community.
