She joined Haltom City in December of 2004 and re-opened the Recreation Center after renovations, adding top-of-the-line fitness equipment, new classes, community events, and reviving old classes and sports programs. Through the years, Christi has grown the Recreation Center and its programs and has developed many relationships with residents and business owners in the process.
