Christopher spent 18 years in the United States Army, from 1995-2013, as an Indirect Fire Infantryman, with numerous overseas deployments in support of combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. After being medically discharged in 2013, Christopher went to work for the Military Veteran Peer Network as the Austin / Travis County coordinator, managing a team of volunteers responsible for connecting veterans to resources. He also assisted the State Veteran Mental Health Office on numerous projects across the State of Texas that were integral in improving the mental health of Texas veterans.
In 2017, Christopher became the Director of Community and Veteran Services for Easterseals Central Texas, where he helped develop and implement a multi-agency collaboration to improve access to a variety of resources for veterans and their family members. Christopher’s passion for helping veterans transition from the military has become his driving force, and he looks forward to continuing that work.
