Hi, I’m Crystal. I’ve had solo adventures around the world, and careers that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I’ve raised a great kid and lots of chickens. I’m ready for the next leg of my journey.

Blogger. parent. student.

My federal retirement was official February 2020. This frees me up to pursue the career in conflict resolution I had in mind when I studied at Brandeis. As a member of the Cherokee Nation with decades of federal employment, I hope to bring my personal experience into a position to inform collaboration between Tribal Governments and US Government.

My experience and training includes

Conflict Resolution

Tribal Cooperation

Data Collection & Analysis


I’m ready to work for you.
