After moving to Natchez with her husband Ryan, Crissy was employed as a Paralegal with Mulhearn & Mulhearn, Attorneys at Law.  In late 2002, she took a job as an Employment Interviewer with the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.  She remained there until a few weeks before the birth of their first son, Matthew Wesley Curry.  While residing in Natchez, Ryan was employed with the Natchez School District and Copiah-Lincoln Community College.  Crissy & Ryan attended the Parkway Baptist Church in Natchez.

During the first week of January 2005, the couple moved to Tupelo, Mississippi.

Crissy presently choses to remain at home with her two young sons.  She & Ryan are active runners and have participated in various 5K events, half marathons and a few marathons.
