Christy comes to the American Federation for Children as a passionate school choice advocate with years of experience in political communications and campaign operations. A born and raised Georgian, she now works to connect and organize countless families who seek the best possible educational opportunities for their kids.
Prior to joining AFC, Christy was the Communications Director for the Georgia Center for Opportunity (GCO), where she worked to further school choice and other opportunity-based initiatives in the Peach State. During her time with GCO, she helped promote growth of the state scholarship tax credit program, which was expanded in 2018. In a former life, she also enjoyed running a state-based political blog, operating a consulting business serving nonprofits, political candidates, and members of Congress, and working alongside legislators as a communications staffer in the Alabama House Majority Office.
Christy is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia and believes that every upcoming football season is the year the Bulldogs will become national champions. She and her husband reside in Sugar Hill.
