Crystal is a native of Pennsylvania, where she graduated from Gettysburg College with a B.A. in English & Philosophy. She enjoyed a seven year career in independent bookstores, most notably at the Great Books-oriented St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. During her time in Maryland, she completed an M.A. in Liberal Arts at St. John’s as well as an M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration at The George Washington University in Washington, DC. After completing graduate school, she stayed on at St. John’s for two more years in order to kick-start the school’s community service program, jetted off to Asheville for a brief stint in Student Affairs at Warren Wilson College, and finally found herself in the Triangle.
Crystal lives in Durham with her husband, Jason, and their Norfolk Terrier, Atlas.
