After Crista’s dad separated from the Air Force, her family settled in Texas. Crista, at the age of 19, started a job at a retail optical store. She knew this was the career field she wanted. Crista received her American Board of Opticianry Certification and went on to manage practices for optometrists and ophthalmologists in the Dallas area, specializing in building new practices from the ground up. What Crista loved most about being in this career field was enhancing someone’s life by surpassing their previous experiences in the optical industry. Crista’s knowledge led to her passion for leading an industry of opticians. Crista was known for being a source of information which she used to cultivate amazing relationships with her patients, colleagues, and staff. Many of those relationships started more than 20 years ago and continue today.
When Crista and her family decided to step away from the Dallas lifestyle and settle down in Mountain Home, ID, she felt that becoming a licensed Realtor® would be the perfect way to allow her to utilize her talents to continue to better people’s lives, but also allow her to be more involved in her community. Crista chose Keller Williams Realty Southwest Idaho because of their deep love of giving back to their community.
