Christie Barry

Practice Coordinator

What are you surprisingly good at?

I love to dance! I took dance lessons for many years and continue to dance in my everyday life. Whether it is in my living room with my children or out with my girlfriends for a night out of town. Dancing has no age limit and allows me to express myself in a way that no other outlet can.

What are you most passionate about?

I’m very close with my friends and family. They are a big and important part of my life and it means a lot to me to be able to spend as much time as I can with them. I’m very grateful for the relationships I’ve built.

I am lucky to have an incredible husband who is an even more amazing father. My children are my world and I truly would not be the person I am today without them.

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

I’m not directly involved with any not-for-profit organizations, but I do help out with my daughter’s school.

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

Graduating college was a huge accomplishment for me. I was never one for school, but getting a college diploma was something that I always wanted to achieve.

I graduated with a diploma in Television Broadcasting and Communications Media from Mohawk College.

I also gained many life skills and friendships during those years, which I am extremely grateful for.

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

I would want the power of stress relief. How great would everyone’s life be without stress?

Anything else?
