A remarkable individual, Christen was a veterinarian, a scholar, a world traveler, a teacher, a lover of all creatures, a daughter, a sister, a fiancee, and a friend. She was compassionate and brilliant, a true inspiration to all who knew her, and to many who did not.

Christen passed away on August 14, 2013 after living with cancer for four years. She was 32 years old. This site serves as a gathering place for her words and for our memories.
