Born in Cedar City, and a graduate of Cedar High, Chris Church completed his bachelor of science in history at SUU in 1994, then moved to Salt Lake City before taking off to New York City to attend Fordham Law School. Twenty years later, Chris now owns a condo in Manhattan and loves living and working in the Big Apple.
Chris remembers his time at SUU as a period of tremendous growth and opportunity that prepared him for graduate school, and learned that anything was possible if he worked hard and had the courage to follow his dreams.
He also has fond memories of being in classes with great professors, completing a six-month fellowship in Moscow, Russia, and performing with the American Folk Ballet. But his interest in attending law school was always his driving force, and he had dreams of becoming a litigator.
Today, he is a legal consultant in banking regulations at Citibank where he specializes in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reforms and the Consumer Protection Act. Professionally he is most proud of being able to survive in New York City and live in a city he loves.
In his spare time, Chris loves cooking for friends and attending the theater. He also enjoys traveling and makes it back to Cedar City as often as he can to visit family and friends. He is also a first-time dog owner and enjoys having brunch with Dash on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on the weekends.
