Surrounded by a large extended family, Christie grew up on a small farm just south of Ozark, Arkansas. She moved to Fayetteville in 1998 to attend the University of Arkansas. While there, she also worked for Walmart Stores, Inc., and eventually deferred her studies to continue her career. After earning several promotions, Christie spent many years as a Store Manager, including grand opening the Neighborhood Market in east Springdale that services portions of District 96.
After 19 years with Walmart, Christie retired to return to the University of Arkansas and continue her education. She currently works with academic support as a Program Mentor and teaches Supplemental Instruction for Economics. Her anticipated graduation in May 2018 will confer Bachelor's degrees in Economics and Political Science.
