Christy Burkey/Director of Marketing & Communications
I’m married to most awesome man alive and have 3 wonderful teenage boys!
Hope Reins has been a part of my life since its inception. It was over a bagel and cup of coffee that my sister, founder Kim Tschirret, first shared her vision for the ministry. Flash forward to today, and I can honestly say my job at Hope Reins has been the most rewarding, and cathartic of my life.
I worked 17 years in Dallas radio and television broadcasting, busy building my resume upward and onward for my glory and the feeling of being accepted and relevant. It wasn’t until after my mother’s death that I faced my own emptiness and the emotional effects of growing up with an alcoholic father.
God got a hold of my heart during a neighborhood bible study, and the kids, horses, and volunteers at Hope Reins began to fill it with meaning and purpose. Even though I’m a gifted wordsmith and creative being, I truly believe the impact of being present with the hurting kids at the ranch is my most important role.
As Director of Marketing & Communications, I tell the story of Hope Reins with beautiful pictures and the written word. As you can imagine, I’m never at a shortage for visuals or content because God is busy healing and redeeming souls every day.
