My Why

Having solutions for people during one of the most stressful and difficult times in their lives is so fulfilling

I never considered changing my career to the senior living industry, but after witnessing first-hand Tea & Toast CEO, Amy Friesen, guide a family through the process of finding a retirement home for their loved one in a crisis situation, I knew that this work was for me.

Every day I am reminded of how important this work is when I hear a client let out a sigh of relief after our first phone call. Having solutions for people during one of the most stressful and difficult times in their lives is so fulfilling. It has changed the way I think about my and my family's futures.

Cristy joined the Tea & Toast team in 2018. A Certified Sommelier and former Winemaker, Cristy’s focus has since turned to the seniors industry.

After witnessing first-hand Tea & Toast CEO, Amy Friesen, guide a family through the process of finding a retirement home for their loved one in a crisis situation, she knew that this work was for her. 

“Day after day I am proud to be a part of an organization that makes a difference. What we do is so needed in the world.”

Cristy is married to Cody, and their baby girl Riley was born in 2021. They also have two Golden Mountain Dogs: Rundle and Berta. With a love of travel, Cristy has visited over fifteen countries. Her longest adventure included five months backpacking throughout South America, solo. She has a passion for yoga, health and wellness. In the winter you will find her snowboarding and in the summer camping with family and friends.
