Christie was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in 2009. Christie describes her double mastectomy and receiving chemo treatments, all while teaching 5th Grade full time. Christie describes her "What's Next", her second act. With grown children and an empty nest, her cancer diagnosis filled her with a renewed purpose. From embracing technology to connecting survivors, Christie started a Facebook Group, Journey to Wholeness after Breast Cancer to Essential Oils, to continuing to teach full time, Christie is as busy now as she was raising her children, running a household with her amazing husband and teaching full time!
Christie's Fave Bible verse is Proverbs 3: 5-6, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge HIM and He will make your paths straight.
Christie describes the importance of gratitude and journaling. Allowing others to help you is truly being a blessing for someone else.
