As a young girl, Crystal used to collect magazines and cut out the pictures to recreate new “magazines.” By Grade 9, she knew she wanted to be in business and started down that path. After working in the corporate world for many years, Crystal left a career in the nuclear industry in 2010 to enter advertising sales. Fast forward to today, she is the Associate Publisher of Refined Saskatoon, managing this market and working with some of the city’s most successful business leaders.
When she’s not prospecting, selling and problem-solving, Crystal is practicing yoga, studying Ayurvedic medicine, or experimenting with plant-based recipes (to the chagrin of friends and family). Crystal volunteers with SCAT Street Cat Rescue and works on their annual fundraiser, Men with Cats Calendar. Crystal is admittedly addicted to CNN and all things politics, religion and human rights related in the world. She enjoys meeting strangers and loves a lively debate on social issues.
“The best part of this work is meeting all the incredibly different personalities and watching them change and shape our community. I’m so proud to give them a powerful platform to share their stories.”
