Cristy is a policy analyst focusing on local government issues in Utah. Her appreciation and affection for community are only second to her fondness for individual and property rights. Her history in city council and state politics as well as education allows for a unique perspective as a policy analyst. She is a graduate of Western Governors University with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. A former public school teacher, Cristy loves living in Highland, her “nerd” books, her outrageously fun family, Harmon’s salad bar, and her mountain bike.
