As a St. Louis native, Christie grew up in South St. Louis graduating from Bishop DuBourg High School, then received her undergraduate degree from Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri, and her JD from Washington University. She spent the first 7 years of her career providing tax consulting services for a Big 4 accounting firm, followed by full time private practice for the next 7 years. Since then, she has been splitting her time between her law practice and providing consulting services to a large RIA as their in-house estate planning advisor. In April of 2024, Christie changed her focus and dedicated 100% of her time to her law practice.

Christie practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, trust and estate administration, business formation, and tax planning.

Christie has been married for over 20 years and has 2 teenage children. She enjoys spending time with her family and watching ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer when her children are playing.
