Crystal has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at San Antonio, and professional experience in engineering, logistics and operations management. She has worked in engineering and management positions for notable companies such as Pratt & Whitney, Dow Chemical Company and Union Pacific Railroad.
Crystal’s experience as a minority woman, coming from an underserved community and advancing to a career in mechanical engineering, sparked the idea to create an organization that would offer underserved young women equal opportunity to pursue professional careers. She wanted to create an organization that would help disadvantaged young women receive free mentorship and professional etiquette training that would help them through school, encourage them to pursue college, and inspire them to pursue professional careers. Her nonprofit organization was founded and started in Austin, TX on December 19, 2016 as a passion project and personal, divine assignment from God.
As the CEO & Founder of The Proverbs 31 Women’s Organization, Crystal leads and manages the organization’s Board of Directors and program operations to provide free mentorship and professional etiquette training classes to underserved young women across the state of Texas. She also owns a consulting company, Brand Your Biz, that specializes in nonprofit consulting, working with brands through social media marketing, and helping entrepreneurs, bloggers and social media influencers build and expand their brands online.
