Born and raised in NJ, Chrissy Hahn moved to NC to attend Elon and graduated in 1998 with a degree in Elementary Education.  She fell in love with the area upon arrival, and has enjoyed making NC her home ever since. She loves being around people--especially children--and is thankful the Lord has blessed her with opportunities to work with children over the years as a 4th grade teacher at BCA; summer camp director and after school care director for Burlington Parks and Rec; board member for ACCHE; teacher for Veritas Classes, Inc.; member at Antioch Community Church; office helper for Arts Alive; and now as Office Manger at AFAA.  But her most-loved role is as a wife to Scott and a home-schooling mom to her three kids; Simeon, Zach, and Vada.
