Meet Cristin!

Hi there! My name is Cristin. I am Transgender, but that doesn’t define me. Like a cat or a raccoon I don’t like boxes that I am stuck in!

When I am not plotting world domination or my next game of Star Trek: Online, I can be found researching new laws presented to the Georgia legislature or figuring out how the needs of the LGBTQIA plus community can be best served and protected through writing our state leaders to craft safe bills that afford us basic rights and protections we are all entitled to as citizens of the United States.

Did I mention I was a veteran and feel strongly about the needs of community vets who have served? I have served in many capacities in our government including Army, Navy, Airforce and Census Department.

My most rewarding role however is being father to the two greatest young men I know, my sons Rob and Ruffin. When not dealing with policies my life consist of being a retired analyst, logistics manager, koi keeper and avid hydroponic gardener!
