Christy Lyle

Chairwoman

Christy Lyle left Plant City 16 years ago to attend The University of Central Florida,
where she earned a bachelor's degree in liberal studies and a minor in political science.
Ten years later, she returned to UCF to complete her MBA. Currently, Christy works
for Eli Lilly as a pharmaceutical sales representative. Christy moved her family back to
Plant City a little over a year ago to be closer to family.

Christy is the membership chair for Rise, and is honored to serve on the first board.
She is excited to meet new young professionals that share the same work ethic and
values as she does.

Her favorite thing about Plant City is the Florida Strawberry Festival. She loves how
the whole town comes together to celebrate. Her biggest hope for Plant City is that it
will be a wonderful community to raise her children and that they will love it so much
that they never leave.
