Hello! My name is Crista and my husband and I live in Idaho. We have 3 daughters, 2 sons, 2 son-in-laws and two new grandbabies due this year! I also work full time as an Administrative Assistant for an awesome Health System.
My journey with MarineParents began in October 2015 when my son, Brennan, was in boot camp. Within the past 18 months, I've had the privilege of volunteering for six boot camp cycles, in two different Battalions (2nd & 3rd) and three different Companies (Kilo, Hotel & Echo). I have the unique perspective being a mom of a Marine and a mother-in-law of a Marine. In addition, one is Infantry and one is Non Infantry. One is deployed, one is at his PDS. Although I have many family members who served in the military, this has been my first up close and personal exposure to military life.
When Brennan was in boot camp, I made it a goal to become more active and lose weight. When I accomplished that goal, it felt pretty good! I've joined Team MarineParents because I'm ready to set new goals, and raise money to for a good cause at the same time. My family is very active, my husband is an avid hiker, my daughters are dancers, but I've always been the least active of the seven of us. I don't want to sit on the sidelines anymore.
I'm so excited to be a part of Team MarineParents, and to travel to Washington DC in October. I'm giving this everything I've got!
