Behind every successful person are many others who have poured their wisdom and perspective into them. The Huguette Clutch is named in honor of Christina's grandmother, someone who not only showed her the rewards that come through hard work and dedication but who also inspires her every day in her faith, in loving her spouse, and in caring for other people, including the patients in her dental practice.
Christina shared the amazing example her grandmother, Huguette, set for her, centered around the loving, stable environment she created for her family through prayer, commitment (she's been happily married for 63 years!), and the pursuit of knowledge. After having two children at a young age, Huguette returned to school for her GED, even though at the time that was rare for anyone to do - especially a woman.
According to Christina, Huguette dedicated her life to “caring for her family and working hard to give them things that she didn’t have growing up. She always worked hard, remained humble and loved the Lord. Even when times were tough, she would lean on Him, knowing He would provide and protect her family.”
Christina has wonderful memories from her childhood with her grandmother, especially in her beautiful gardens where Huguette not only shared her green thumb but also talked about the importance of family and faith. She continues to enjoy spending time with her today.
