About Us

Boatwright Financial, LLC is the culmination of more than two decades’ worth of dreaming, inspiration, hard work and experience.

Owner and principal Christa Haynes entered the insurance and financial services industry shortly after the birth of her son, Tyler. At the suggestion of her husband, the new parents went to their local State Farm agent to get life insurance, and the agent offered her a job as a receptionist. Within a year, she obtained multiple licenses and in 2001 became an agent with the Horace Mann Companies, providing auto, home and life insurance as well as comprehensive retirement planning to educators and administrators in the state of New Mexico. After obtaining her Life Underwriter Training Council Fellowship (LUTCF) designation, she sought ways to expand the business and joined New York Life in 2010. Her ambition to provide a better life for her family led to the acceptance of a corporate role with New York Life that would move the family from rural New Mexico to Bossier City, Louisiana and then to their current location in Chicago, Illinois.

In early 2020, Christa’s son, Tyler- twenty-one years after his birth and the purchase of their very first policy- joined New York Life as an agent. Christa subsequently left her corporate role in order to partner with Tyler and get back to doing the things she’s always loved the most- helping individuals, families and businesses plan for the future.

Christa and James Haynes have been married since 1997 and have two children; Tyler and Mackenzie. The family enjoys spending time together, whether it’s watching movies, going to concerts, or traveling abroad.
