Chris Smyth, Preschool Minister, has been a part of Lifespring since 1977, when a friend invited her to come. She has served on staff since 1998. She loves everything about her job. “Working with the volunteers, preschoolers, and families is all great!” she said.
Chris graduated from the University of Cincinnati and the College of Mt. St. Joseph with educational degrees and worked as a teacher of students with multiple disabilities. She was also a full-time mom and worked as a preschool teacher.
Since 1977, Chris has been married to her husband Glen. They have two adult sons, two daughters-in-law, and three granddaughters who are the loves of their lives. For fun, she enjoys hanging out with her family (especially the granddaughters) and reading and cooking
