Chris joined the Civil War Trails team as Program Administrator in January 2018. Previously employed by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, his focus included education programming and donor facilitation. He was born and raised in Virginia, surrounded by history from a very early age. His favorite activities include brewing beer, reading, and hiking with his wife Nicole and their puppy. Much to the dismay of his colleagues Chris has never been fond of oysters. He holds a B.A. in history from George Mason University.
