Christy made her way to Los Angeles via Minnesota, North Carolina and Las Vegas. Often being the new girl and navigating her way around new schools has shaped her approach to casting and teaching in a profound way. She brings these unique insights and casting experiences to the classroom. Both as a Casting Director and Teacher, Christy is a fearless advocate for actors and bringing their original voices together to create a thriving community. 

Christy began her casting career at FOX over 20 years ago and since then she has cast numerous half hour and drama pilots, series & movies including Aaron Sorkin’s, "The Newsroom," Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups" and "Seal Team" currently airing on CBS.   

So far this year, her students have booked series regular, recurring and guest stars roles on: Good Girls, The Sinner, Star Trek: Picard, David Fincher's "Mank," HBO's "Perry Mason," and many more.
