Christie moved to Morro Bay with her husband Joe and son Dylan in 2011.  She feels very blessed to be part of this wonderful community.  Prior to entering the Pharmacy profession Christie was a manicurist and salon manager; she found that she truly enjoyed the close relationships that formed between her and her customers.  This discovery lead Christie into choosing to work in small privately owned and family run pharmacies so that she could continue to form similar bonds with her customers that she finds so rewarding.  Accuracy and customer service are her top priorities.  Christie prides herself in going the extra mile to ensure her customers happiness.  She welcomes the opportunity to help; whether it is by calling your insurance company for you or just simply helping you out to your car when your hands are full, whatever the situation may be Christie is glad to make your experience at Morro Bay Drug and Gift a pleasant one.
