Christine Barry

Director of Development


I grew up in Odessa with my mom. I am an only child. My town was the focus of the movie Friday Night Lights (true story about Permian Panthers football team).  I love football for that reason. I went to Texas Tech University where I obtained my Bachelor of Administration with a focus on Management. I moved to DFW and eventually worked for a company as a Regional Business Development Manager for over 10 years. I have 2 children who attend CCA, and our family loves this school! As I drive to the school every morning to drop off the kids, I have to pinch myself that now I am here every day and get to be a part of making this wonderful school a success.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? a lawyer

Why do you choose to work at CCA? When my daughter started in PK3 (10 years ago), I fell in love with the school and hoped one day that my work experiences would somehow fit within the CCA administration.

What is one fun fact about you? I collect Foam Fingers that you get from any sporting events.

What is your favorite book of all time? Walt Disney The Triumph of the American Imagination. Walt was such an amazing and innovative man of his time and his imagination was beyond anything ever seen. Plus, I have loved Mickey Mouse since I was a little girl!

What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? a compliment

What do you like to do for fun? I like shopping and being with friends hanging out.
