Crystal spent her childhood exploring space—in the form of Lego® blocks, drawings, and maps. In college, she explored careers, with a minor in art and a job in landscape architecture. Fortunately for A&E, she was more attracted to architecture. She remains intensely curious, delving into the history of buildings and the inner workings of construction. A true team player, Crystal stays with her projects from the first design to the final phase of building. She’s the mother of two spirited young daughters, one large dog, and a cat named Velvet.
