Christie joined the Generous Giving Engagement Team in early 2020 with a crystal-clear vision of what God brought her here to do. She is especially passionate about sharing the joy that comes from living a life of Biblical generosity. She enjoys inspiring generosity conversations and enjoys the resulting actions in her own life and the lives of others.
Christie grew up in Los Angeles before moving to Spokane, Washington, where she met her high school sweetheart turned lifelong husband, Josh, and earned a degree in Psychology from Whitworth University. They relocated to Portland in 2003 so Christie could study Theology at George Fox University. They fell in love with the city and its community, and with the exception of one incredible year abroad in England, they have called Portland “home” ever since. They now live in SW Portland with their two children, Noah and Natalie. Christie is a longtime entrepreneur and business owner, with experience in events, interiors, sales, and leadership development. She also serves as the Committee Chair for SW Portland Young Life.
