Faces of Northeast: Christine Fabin

Christine Fabin is a local attorney who has lived in the Northeast for about two years. Originally from California, she attended U.C. Berkeley and Lewis & Clark Law School to become a lawyer, where she is focused on Business Immigration.

When she was growing up in California, she was used to being surrounded by beaches or mountains, and when she first moved to Missouri five years ago, that was the thing she missed most: being surrounded by nature.

“My husband took me to Cliff Drive, and we rode our bikes down the drive, and we rode our bikes to the end of it, and at the end I looked at him and said ‘If we ever buy a house in Kansas City it has to be here.’”

Not too long after, she bought a house in Scarritt Renaissance, and fell in love with the diversity of the area. Here, she says, she is surrounded by many different kinds of people, that create their own diverse community. For her, the Northeast has quickly turned to home.

“All of my best friends are my neighbors. I hang out with them before I hang out with anyone else.  The Northeast is its own amazing community, which is pretty groovy.”
