July Employee Spotlight - Christie Sanders Thompson
Starting here at MHA we will be doing monthly Employee Spotlights so you all can get to know our staff. For the month of July, our spotlight goes to Christie Sanders Thompson. She is our leasing coordinator and has been with us for 30 years!
Christie grew up in Troy, TN, and moved to Martin when she began working at MHA. She has one brother and one sister. She is married to her best friend Robert, and they have a daughter and a grandson. Christie also has a fur baby who rules the roost, Lacy Jo, a 2-year-old Blue Lacy. For the last eight years, she has been singing soprano with the David Johnson Chorus, an auditioned chorus that has sung all over the US and won awards at World Choir Games. Christie enjoys tinkering with things that are broken or do not work anymore because she loves to bring them back to life. She spends her downtime at home with Robert and Lacy, except when they visit her brother in Troy on the Sanders Way Farm.
When asked what she loves about her job Christie said, "My co-workers and other job-related colleagues that I have met over the years are really high on my list of things I enjoy about my job. Ultimate gratification comes from the realization of all the people that I have helped in one way or another during my tenure, many without their knowledge. When I run into a former resident who tells me I made a difference in their lives, it makes my heart smile."
