About Me

Christina M. DeBusk, a.k.a. “the grit girl”

Although I spent the first 15 years of my career in law enforcement positions, I’ve always had a passion for personal development … a love for the power and confidence you feel when taking steps to improve your own life.

Friends and family kind of laugh at me because, while they’re busy reading the latest bestselling romances and thrillers, I typically have my nose in a book that teaches me how to eat healthier, shares ways to increase physical activity, provides strategies for boosting my career, and, basically, shows me what to do to become an all-around better person.

About 8 years ago, I walked away from my jobs at the courthouse and Sheriff’s Department. I had the opportunity to move across the country with my now-husband and decided it was the perfect time to pursue a lifelong passion of mine: writing.

What do I write about? Anything that can help people live their best lives possible.

In addition to writing a few books of my own, I now spend my days sitting behind the computer creating articles, blogs, and other written content for a handful of core clients. I’ve also been published in well-known magazines, such as Woman’s Day, Country Living, and Costco Connection.

Overall, I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I have more confidence, speak my mind more often, and, when it comes to work, I’m able to set my own schedule, pick my own projects, and pretty much control my professional life.

When I’m not trying to find the perfect way to say something in writing, I like to go for walks, read, or take in the latest episode of one of the many cooking competitions I love to watch.

Really, I’m just a simple girl who is always on the path of self-improvement. So, if you’re the kind of person who enjoys the same, I encourage you to follow this blog and comment with your experiences.

In the end, it’s all about helping each other be the best we can be. Plus…us “gritsters” need to stick together!
