Christa:

Christa* has lived in WNC for almost 20 years. In her spare time, she loves to travel, create artwork and jewelry, hike and kayak.

She spent years raising her family, studying massage therapy, getting a college degree, and working in food service before finding herself at AFG Distribution.

She is a great speller but can’t type without making millions of typos and she has an unnatural obsession with Kenny Loggins.

and may actually learn something!

Lisa:

For the past twenty years, Lisa has lived in Central Florida, but her heart’s been in Asheville. She and her four legged friend, Eli, have finally returned permanently, after visiting Asheville several weeks a year for many years now. Moving “home” was inevitable, and AFG Distribution offered the perfect opportunity to make that dream come true.

One of her most memorable adventures was not by foot or tire, but by water -- A five day jet ski trip to the Bahamas that began on the Florida Coast! This trip ended with a bang, with stops by Coast Guards and Customs officials of all sorts who proceeded to search their crafts for illegal substances, adding five extra hours to the already exciting adventure.

Lisa has a fascination with gourmet foods, wine, motorcycles, racing, good local Asheville music, and she is absolutely obsessed with Aussies (Australian Shepherds that is!)

Lisa is living the dream being back in Asheville amongst her broad circle of friends that are, at heart,family- and a big one at that!
