She now leads an organization conducting seminal work in the field of Empathic Intelligence and its application to conflict transformation, social cohesion, communal resiliency, and servant leadership.

Christy is a published writer, speaker, and the executive producer of the 2022 documentary film, "Dialogue Lab: America," a moving take on the current state of division and polarization in the U.S. She has appeared on podcasts like How Do We Fix It and Bob Goff's Dream Big Podcast, with articles and op-eds published in the Washington Post, Christianity Today, and Capital Commentary.
