With a diploma in graphic design from Red River College and extensive background in the arts and multimedia, Crystal’s journey began in the magazine industry as a layout designer. Her beginning work in the design industry sparked her passion and interest and gave her a glimpse into the role of a graphic/web designer. After working her way up through a variety of firms and corporate positions, she eventually found her way into freelance, living her true passion in the graphic design and VA world. When Crystal isn’t working you will most likely find her outdoors, gardening or out exploring the cities most interesting markets and food venues. Crystals creative passion often brings her indoors to her home art studio, where she also finds creative ways to give back through the local charity she runs; called Bags of Hope, helping the homeless.
