Cristy has been working in the substance abuse treatment field since 2010. Cristy’s treatment career has been enhanced by a variety of roles in both adolescent and adult treatment, including Case Manager, IOP Counselor, IOP Program Manager, Assistant Clinical Director, and now Driftwood Recovery’s Community Integration Program Director. Cristy is committed to incorporating family involvement and community resources to aid in every client’s process through recovery and is currently in school working towards her Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy.

She has a special place in her heart for working with clients that struggle with substance abuse as well as eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image issues. “If I had not had the privilege of having loving and patient treatment providers throughout my journey to recovery, I would not have had the chance to do the work I am blessed in doing now.”
