About Christi

Home
I was born and raised in Southern Indiana, but moved north to attend Ball State University's Teacher College. We built out first home just outside of Dayton, Ohio, in October 2015. 


Family 
I married my husband, Ryan, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina in June 2011. After working in clinical research on the burn unit for a few years, Ryan decided to go back to school to become a doctor. He is currently a plastic surgery resident. 

Our so Carter was born March 8, 2016. We also have three furbabies; Isabelle, Gracie, and Lily.



9 to 5
With a master's in elementary education and a reading specialist license, I taught third grade in Indiana for 10 years. During this time, I became an educational blogger and curriculum writer.

Those projects led me to creating custom blog designs, graphics, and digital paper through Design by Christi and my Etsy store. I officially opened Plaid Apple Ltd. in January 2012 to house these growing companies. 


In October 2013, I also became an independent Jamberry Nails Consultant. I am now a founding Elite Executive with the company and so proud of our growing team. 


I resigned from teaching in July 2014 to become self-employed full time.
