Christy was born and raised in the small town of Clark, South Dakota. A few days after she graduated high school she moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to work at Valley Fair for the summer then moved to St. Cloud, Minnesota to attend SCSU. After only one year, she moved back to Minneapolis and wrapped up her college education in less than two years earning her Associate’s of Applied Science Degree in Visual Communications at Brown College. She kicked off her career working as a lead in the design, copy and print department at Office Max, then as a graphic design and pre-press manager at Printmaster Printing, a small family-owned print shop in the northern suburbs. Only a year later she started her own company with only 5 clients on the books. To make ends meet, she also worked part-time at Creative Carton where she was the lead designer, drafter and 3D illustrator for corrugated point-of-purchase displays designed for big brands like Target and Cambria. As her clients grew she turned her business full-time and it’s grown every year since. Her company has grown to a client list of over 100 and she now manages 3 locations, traveling back and forth on a regular basis. Even though most days she works 12-15 hours a day plus weekends, she says she never works a day in her life. When she does find time to play, she loves spending time with her family, traveling and riding her 2017 Indian Scout motorcycle. Christy lives in Ramsey, Minnesota with her husband Dan and their daughter Emma.
