Before calling Chicago home, Christy studied communications at Elon University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While she sometimes finds herself daydreaming about real sweet tea, there’s nothing about the windy city this Southern transplant doesn’t like (Endless summer festivals? Keep them coming! A foodie’s paradise? Yes, please! Freezing temps? Bring ’em on). When she’s not scoping out the latest Chicago has to offer, you’ll probably find Christy on the lakefront training for another marathon, or roaming the aisles of Whole Foods without a grocery list. She’s thrilled to be part of FFF’s team! Follow Christy on Twitter @christymjames.
