Christy is a hometown girl from Advance, Missouri and grew up watching KFVS12.

Christy was bit by the performance bug early in life after taking dance lessons. She conducted her first interviews in seventh grade for a History Day project on German-Lutherans immigrating to the southeast Missouri towns of Altenburg and Frohna in the 1800s.  After a couple of years on the yearbook team in high school, she decided to try her hand at journalism in college.

She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Missouri State University in May 2007. While in college, she worked for the NPR affiliate in Springfield, interned at KSPR and KY3, and won four awards from the Missouri Broadcast Educators Association.

It was during an internship at KFVS that she realized KFVS12 would always be home and wanted to work for the best station in the Heartland.

Christy was a 2010-2011 recipient of the Midwest Health Journalism Fellowship. She also participated the 2013 Raycom Newsroom Leadership Program.

In her current role as Digital Content Director, Christy is in charge of the news content on www.kfvs12.com, our mobile apps, social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, etc.), text and email alerts.

When she's not at work, Christy enjoys trying out new recipes and restaurants in the Heartland and spending time with her husband Josh, her two cat, Lucy, and beagle, Cayanne.

She loves talking to viewers, learning new story ideas and ways to make KFVS12's digital products better.  Email Christy | Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn
