Meet Christie, Our Village River Forest's MNO Coordinator

Christie Putz lives in Oak Park with her husband Craig, sons Alexander (2.5) and Andersen (9 months), as well as two “fur-children” Glintzie (poodle) and Kedzie (maine coon). She currently works part-time as a technology consulting manager for Accenture leading implementations for large global organizations.

Christie has been a part of FIT4MOM River Forest since the summer of 2016 and participates in Stroller Strides classes every chance she gets. Christie has found FIT4MOM to be a wonderful way to workout without worrying about coordinating childcare or missing her valuable time with the kiddos! She especially loves the “village” of Mamas she’s had the opportunity to meet and develop great friendships with. Christie looks forward to blending her love of dining out and girl-time by coordinating fun and well-earned monthly Mom’s Night Out events.

Meet Christina, Our Village River Forest's Playgroup Captain

Christina Ricordati lives in Forest Park with her husband, Dave, and sons Hank (2.5) and Teddy (10 months). She currently works part-time as a Policy Development Consultant at a nationwide nonprofit organization. She also serves on the Forest Park school board.

Being active was an important part of Christina's life, playing sports from early childhood all the way through college, so she was so excited when Stroller Strides classes opened in River Forest and started up right away. She loves being able to exercise while still spending time with her little guys! She also loves the awesome friends she's made for her and her children through the FIT4MOM community. In her spare time, she enjoys adventuring with her boys, exploring Chicago and the suburbs, and all things Disney!
