Dr. Christie’s love of sports and outdoor activities, along with desire to help others enjoy a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle, were motivational in choosing the field of chiropractic as her career. Over the years she has gained a reputation as a doctor who cares for the whole person, having helped correct many problems before they became major chronic conditions that could have led to medicinal or surgical treatment.

Born and raised in nearby Raton, New Mexico, she has played inter-collegiate basketball and is an avid biker, hiker and tennis player. And on game days she can be seen wearing her Bronco’s jersey around the office!

Dr. Christie graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Southern Colorado, where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. She then graduated Salutatorian of Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX with a Doctorate in Chiropractic, as well as her second Bachelor of Science Degree in Anatomy.
