Julie Chrisley said she has always relied on faith in her life.
“Even when I was a child, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, really, so I just went to school and learned as much as I could,” Chrisley said. “And by college, I really kind of found my place in life.”
She left La Canada to attend college in Denver where she earned a business degree and worked as a cashier for several years.
Then, in the late ‘70s, she and her three daughters moved to Washington state. She went to college at Mount Hermon, earning a Bachelor of Arts in history.
At first, Chrisley’s children did not follow her in her move to Colorado, and she spent time working with them. When she returned to La Canada to visit, they were less engaged. Chrisley saw their lack of involvement and was struck by it.
In her younger years, Chrisley said, she thought about moving back to the east coast. But she realized she missed her family. So, in 2010, she decided to return to the east coast. “I just didn’t have any good reason to stay,” Chrisley said.
