Christa was born into an outdoorsy, traveling family in the Pacific Northwest - evergreens, mountains, and crystal cold lakes are a part of her DNA. Christa spent 11 years living overseas in Hong Kong working for an outdoor education company followed by a one-year travel sabbatical in Central and South America with her hubby and two kids. Having recently settled in Bend, Oregon, Christa is loving putting roots down and creating community in the high desert. She's an active member of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue team and an avid skier, biker, paddler, yogi, and runner.
Growing up in the PNW I’ve spent a lot of time in the great outdoors. When not working as a Physical Therapist Assistant I am often found in the mountains hiking, skiing, climbing, fly fishing, camping and mountain bike riding with my husband, son, family and dog.
A girafficorn in retirementville who is a lifelong skier, I have taken up mountain biking and paddleboarding in my 60's and pretty much just like playing outside. If stuck indoors it's a pretty good bet I am working on cool artsy craftsy stuff.
