Christy Bonstell

Christy Bonstell spends most of her time making people laugh. The best laughs are the ones she gets from her five-year-old son, Keagan. A recent transplant to Oak Park, Christy grew up in Michigan and is a huge fan of the Detroit Tigers (in football season it's all Bears).  Christy started her career at the Detroit News and has been writing about families, health and trends ever since. She couldn't be happier to be a part of the Oak Park and Chicago Parent communities.
