Christy's subject-matter expertise and professionalism, combined with her sincere and helpful demeanor, make her the best at what she does. If you are lucky enough to work with her, come prepared to learn/grow as a human. She is the best at what she does, and deserves recognition! Thank you :)

Christy is AMAZING and has made the biggest difference in our situation. I seriously don't know where we'd be without her expertise, insight and guidance. She's also just a wonderful person!
