Born in Hondo, Texas, Chris attended private parochial Catholic Elementary School for the first eight years and then graduated from Hondo High School. Thereafter, she lived in San Antonio, Austin, and also Long Beach California before traveling to Mexico and Canada where she fell in love with the snow capped mountain backdrop of Vancouver in 1972. She then traveled East to Montreal in 1975 where she met a young man and settled down. In Montreal, she home-birthed two sons, learned to speak French, and after a six year relationship, she and her partner separated and she moved back to beautiful British Columbia where she raised the boys as a single mom. The boys currently live in Vancouver.
Chris has a diverse work history. She studied and taught a Women's Self Defence course (Wen-do) and started a sign painting business in the Langley and Abbotsford areas. Using her sales talent to drum up work, she also did seasonal window dressings during the busy Christmas Holidays, which proved to be very good income as the years passed and her clientele grew. As for sign painting, new methods for producing signs were being implemented, so she quit the dying art of sign lettering and looked for other opportunities.
By now the boys were in their primary grades and she wanted to raise them in a quieter environment, so they moved to Victoria. There, she took a Business Administration course which propelled her into a new entrepreneurial venture: manufacturing a family salsa recipe which she aptly named "Santos Salsa".
This thriving business expanded to the Greater Vancouver market until the company was sold in 1991. At this time, Chris started her second business - her Real Estate Career. She worked as a Realtor in Greater Vancouver for 13 years before moving to the Okanagan in 2004 where she enjoys a quieter lifestyle today.
In 2005 she joined the Salt Fowler Team and the rest is history!
