Christina Kraybill

Daughter of Warren and Linda Tyson of Brownstown PA, I shared an enriching childhood with three younger siblings. After graduation from Eastern Mennonite High School, a touring choir trip to Germany gave me a yearning to return to Europe. Before starting college, I experienced a life changing experience while serving one year as a member of the Germany YES team with Eastern Mennonite Missions. During my young adult years, I earned a BA in Sociology with a Business Management minor from Millersville University part-time while working full-time for Staples. In my final year of college, I accepted a position at York Rescue Mission as the director of Women’s Ministry during which time I met my husband. Currently I make my home in Berryville VA with my husband, Eugene and our cat, Kitty. We relocated from Pennsylvania in 2008 in order to be closer to the Washington Dulles airport where Eugene works as an airline pilot. Besides operating this business, I volunteer as an assistant airport chaplain at Washington Dulles Airport ( Metropolitan Washington Airports Interfaith Chapels ). My husband and I are active members of the Mennonite church. I really enjoy vegetable gardening, reading, exploring with Eugene, baking bread, watching birds, and visiting our family.



I was born and raised in Ohio, moving to the beautiful state of Virginia fourteen years ago. I met my significant other, Marty, a year after living here, and we've shared the last thirteen years together. We've recently purchased our first house in neighboring Jefferson county, West Virginia. Over the years, our family has grown; we shared our home with three cats, before having our son, who is now an amazing little two year old. He makes our hearts so full. And our newest addition, Odin, a German Shepherd! Before having our son, I was a retail manager for ten years. I'm happy to bring my expericence and creativity to, My Neighbor and Me. I feel blessed to work for a Fair Trade company that supports and empowers others; both internationally and locally. I enjoying spending time with my family, watching our son grow and experience life. Going on walks, hiking, fishing, and taking in the beautiful Clarke and Jefferson county scenery.
