Christie Johnson

Christie is a native Memphian who loves all things parenting! Her love of being a mom absolutely stems from being the 14th child of 16 children and having been raised and grounded in love and family values. Christie enjoys reading romance novels, writing when she feels that her voice can’t be heard, watching movies, and spending quality time with Jan, her best friend and husband of 14 years. She enjoys regaling others about their love at first sight meeting on Beale Street and dating 9 years before saying “I do!” Christie and Jan, a Navy Veteran, have three sons all of whom attend University Schools: Jason (January 2011), Nicholas (March 2009), Thomas (March 2008) and a bonus daughter Taylor (March 2003) who lives in Alabama.
