My name is Christie Chaump and I am a Reno, Nevada native. I am the youngest of three, with two older brothers who never fail to make me simultaneously laugh and get annoyed. I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) in December 2019 with a degree in International Business, a concentration in Marketing and a minor in Spanish Language and Society. I am currently pursuing my MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno.
My purpose is to promote health and wellness because when I was diagnosed with a chronic disease, I had no idea that the way I was living my life was causing internal damage. The diagnosis forced me to reevaluate what I was eating, drinking, how much rest I was getting, my stress levels, etc. I feel it is so important for everyone to understand their bodies more and the best ways to take care of it. Since the day I received my diagnosis, I have made small changes in my lifestyle that I want to share so that you too can turn wellness into a lifestyle.
I decided to pursue my MBA at the University of Nevada, Reno because I want to start my own non-profit one day. I am hoping to learn the tools necessary to start a successful non-profit in the health industry and help others get through tough diagnoses. I look forward to sharing my insights with you!
