Christa Ogden

Motivated, persistant, and hard-working are a few words that can describe Christa. A Rotary International Exchange Student to Germany and later to France, this Texan/Okie comes to the SCA just before graduating with her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma. The emphasis of her degree on Wildlife and Fisheries is a perfect match for the area she will be working in this summer, with Christa hoping to add the experience she gains from SCA to those gained from her time at the Three Forks Nature center at Sequoyah State Park in northeastern Oklahoma.

Big parts of Christa’s life are her family and learning about her heritage. Her mother’s family is originally from Ada, Oklahoma. She is the granddaughter of Louis Alan Bronaugh (of the Hodges/Coon families) and Charda Faith Pierce. Christa is the daughter of Christina Faith Bronaugh and Rayford Randolph and has two children, Ava, who is 5 years old, and Jason, who is 5 months.

Christa’s hobbies include powwow, sewing, beadwork, horseback riding, camping, hiking, volleyball, stickball, (almost anything outdoors, really) and getting together for barbeques with friends. Christa expects to gain a better understanding of the fundamental requirements for managing a lake and for connecting with the public in a positive way, so that she may one day apply her understanding as a successful biologist or field agent for the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
