Christian and her family

Christian fell in love with Lexington, Virginia, as a freshman at Washington & Lee. In college, she also met and fell in love with her husband of almost 24 years, Ben, who grew up in Lexington.

After putting herself through law school, Christian built a sole practice representing clients in all aspects of family law while Ben worked for the local community college. Christian was active in her local bar association and legal community, serving as a volunteer and board member with the local pro bono organization for many years.

Ben and Christian kept a painting of House Mountain over their fireplace to remind them of their goal to return to where they first met. When Ben had the opportunity to take a position as the Academic Vice-President of Dabney S. Lancaster Community College, the family moved to Lexington and found a home within walking distance of Ben’s parents.

Their daughter is a rising sophomore at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and their son is a rising junior at Rockbridge County High School, where he keeps busy with sports.

Christian has been a dedicated volunteer as a member of the Lexington City Democratic Committee, helping to run Get Out The Vote efforts for the past three elections. She serves on the board of CARE Rockbridge and United Way of Rockbridge, and is an ever-present volunteer at local events and festivals.
