Highland Springs Featured on WFAA’s Good Morning Texas

May 25, 2017

Dallas, Texas—May 23 was not the typical work morning for Christina Christie, the Director of Sales for Highland Springs.  Instead of greeting residents and beginning the day with a stand-up meeting with her team, she was in the studio of WFAA Channel 8 News, the ABC affiliate in Dallas.

At 8:15am, Christina was preparing to be interviewed for a feature on Good Morning Texas, a daily news program of WFAA.  

"It was a great experience to see what goes on behind the scenes and how well choreographed the whole production is," Christina stated.  "Although we worked with WFAA in advance on our discussion topics, the early arrival allowed me time to review the script and to 'mic up'"

At approximately 9:40am CDT, Christina was in studio and on-air, being interviewed by Good Morning Texas co-anchor Alanna Sarabia.

"Alanna was terrific at keeping the conversation following.  She's a true professional," described Christina.  "We discussed what sets Highland Springs apart as an Erickson Living community in the Dallas market, starting with our residents, employees and mission.  Other topics included our amenities, on-site medical center, dining options and the array of clubs and activities enjoyed by residents.  Finally, I was able to speak briefly about our growth with the construction of Magnolia Place and Twin Oaks Square."

The broadcast marked Christina's first appearance on live local television.

"I've been in commercials and participated in a pre-recorded interview in the past, but never on live TV," she said.  "When the segment ended, I was relieved!  But spreading the word about Highland Springs on WFAA made all the preparation worth it."
