About the Publisher

Krista Cheatham, Publisher.

After experiencing both the challenge of generating business for her Husbands business in contracting and looking for reputable contractors and to work on her own home, Krista launched Home Upgrades Magazine with the goal of introducing local homeowners to reliable contractors they can trust. A self-professed magazine junkie, she rose to the challenge of crafting a publication that’s as helpful as it is entertaining. “Growing up here, I understand the demographics of this area,” she said. “I see Home Upgrades as a much-needed source for our community.” She believes that Collin County is the best place to live in Texas and loves living in McKinney.  Krista’s  passion is to create inspiring spaces that encourage others to do the same thing in their own homes.  When she is not at the office, she spends her time at home with her husband Kory and trying to keep up with her two children’s schedule.
