Christie began her career in the death care profession in 1991 as a preneed cemetery counselor. She quickly moved through the ranks to become the Assistant Manager helping to develop a highly successful preneed funeral program from the ground up. In 2011 Christie ventured out on her own and created Sound Market Solutions, a preneed consulting firm that specializes in preneed market share development. Shortly after, Christie forged a strategic relationship with Cairn Partners to provide her consultative services to an even broader clientele base. Christie uses every tool at her disposal to provide her clients with a broad knowledge base in sales, marketing and education.
