Crystal is Chief Story Teller / co-creator of PTSD: People, Trauma, and Stress Discussed: an unfiltered truth, a successful podcast (2018) and co-host of the She Built This Podcast with Emily Aborn.

Crystal does not believe people or organizations should be defined by their life stressors, past and present, and hopes to offer advocacy, empowerment, and confidence in order to reach maximum potential. She is the voice of change, a cheerleader for the underdog, and speaker about all things that are the elephant in the room. Her unique life experiences have been gifts as they have given her the ability to connect with a vast audience.
