 Boys Boarding School Admissions Email Address

Christy has been part of the Cherokee Creek family since 2010. She served as a counselor with us for 6 months before heading off to Liberty University to obtain a Masters Degree in Professional Counseling which she received in 2013. As part of her degree plan, she completed her graduate school internship here at CCBS.

After graduation, Christy became a full-time member of the team as she became our weekday 2nd shift Floor Manager. Her energy, enthusiasm and warm personality coupled with her leadership and organizational gifts were natural fits for continued growth into the Assistant Admissions Director and Family Center Manager roles.

In 2020, Christy transitioned into the Admissions Director role where she is able to continue to follow her strong passion for supporting hurting teens and families.

Let me share a middle school story…

“While I was in middle school I lived in Douglasville, Georgia, right outside of Atlanta. I went to a small private school where I played basketball in the 7th grade. I believe I played in one game. I was definitely an overachiever and liked to succeed at everything I did. However, this wasn’t completely realistic, hence I only played in one basketball game! I was very chunky for my age which led to a lot of bullying and name calling. I remember being called ‘cow’ and being ‘mooed’ at multiple times. This did not lead to a great middle school experience, but it did lead me to become very resilient!”
