Christy was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but lived in Texas the majority of her life. Now, work has her living in the Bay Area with her husband and yellow lab. Her first international travel experience was for a summer study abroad program in Italy. After that, she knew that she was destined to travel as much as possible.

Luckily, her husband worked at Southwest Airlines, so they were introduced to the exciting world of “non-rev” travel. This allowed them to visit over 30 countries – mostly on standby. After he left that role, she dove into the world of credit card rewards points to keep traveling for free!

Besides travel, Christy’s other love is personal finance. She holds a BA in Accounting and an MS in Finance, both from Texas A&M University. She is also a Certified Public Accountant.
