Help Us Welcome Christy!

Where are you from?

I moved to Fargo earlier this summer from Watertown, SD.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I have always had the passion to create even from an early age which led me to attend college for Graphic Design and follow that career path through the last 8 years. Not only do I find joy in creating on the computer, but I also enjoy woodworking and for the past couple of years have started up my own small home decor business. When I’m not busy creating, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 5 years and our cute, little dog, Farley. 

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?

I would have to say Zooey Deschanel, Jess from New Girl, would play me just for the simple fact that she makes people laugh even though she can be awkward and over-emotional at times. She keeps trying even through her continuous struggles and I can relate to that whole-heartedly.

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

I enjoy Netflixing and going to the movies with the hubby, baking, and taking walks with my dog, Farley.

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?

I’ve been known to eat ketchup on green beans, which I’ve been told multiple times is a little ridiculous. I promise it’s delicious, just try it!

We have two grandchildren, Gabriella (6) and Lincoln (5). We live on Wall Lake, 5 miles east of Fergus Falls.

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?

Kevin Costner. Because he’s the “coolest”. 

What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Fishing, boating, hunting and snowmobiling.  

What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?

I was riding a snowmobile that caught fire and i didn’t realize it. I continued to ride it right between the gas pumps of a nearby convenience store, then realized it was on fire. I jumped off just 200 yards from my home and called 911 while many of my neighbors and I watched it burn until the Fire Department arrived.
