The organization was much smaller when she arrived in 1997, and it has been a great joy to see all the different ways our agency has grown to support those suffering with SUD not only in Midland but across the mid-Michigan region.

Her role is overseeing the financial and human resources functions of Ten16. She is humbled by the difficult work done by Ten16 and honored to be a part of this organization for so long.  Her young family has grown, and her 3 children all work in different cities now, but she and her husband continue to enjoy their life in Midland.

During her first stint with Ten16 she moved from managing and providing clinical services from the Big Rapids office to eventually managing the programs at the five outpatient locations (at that time).  She took a break in 2015 to work in the Big Rapids community within the primary care setting, hoping to help those with behavioral health concerns (including substance use concerns) to achieve better coordinated health care and to address the stigma surrounding use of substances.

Christa returned to Ten16 Recovery Network, Big Rapids, in October 2020, in a role managing the Big Rapids Outpatient location and part of the leadership team.
