Christie Walsh - President

Christie Walsh is the President of Get Unplugged LLC and Co-founder of Camp Unplugged. While seeking help for the negative effects digital media overuse was having on her family, she realized the need for preventative solutions for digital media addiction. Dr. Andrew Doan’s book, “Hooked on Games” was instrumental in connecting the neurochemistry processes stimulated by digital media with destructive, self-limiting behaviors. Together with the Doan’s and Real Battle Ministries, they developed the “Digital Vortex Survival Guide Workbook”. It has helped hundreds of teens at summer programs around the world. Camp Unplugged is designed to educate and empower teens and their parents to help win this very Real Battle affecting families worldwide.
