About Me

My combination of communication, technical, and design experience offers a powerful and unique skill set. I have over 20 years of combined experience in communications, graphic design, and IT.

In 2018, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communication at Royal Roads University. I received the President´s Scholar Award for graduating with distinction in the top 10% of the class.

Starting in early 2018, I work for the Town of Sylvan Lake creaeting a wide variety of communication products, design, and web communication/ administration.

In 2005, I received a Diploma in Fine Arts and Graphic Design from North Island College, acheiving the Dean's Honour Roll. I then worked in communications and graphic design for a private drug and alcohol rehab facility for 5 years.

I received a Diploma in Computer Systems Technology in 1997 from Camosun College and have worked on a variety of high-level government projects, including the Department of National Defence year 2000 project, cataloguing all computer-based systems at Dockyard Base, Victoria. I led a team of web developers maintaining the Government of BC’s home page. I also worked as a consultant on a rework of the Legislative Assembly of BC’s website.

I volunteered with Our Place Society in Victoria for four years, serving soup, providing tech support, and building their first website. In 2015, I started volunteering for the Central Alberta Mopar Association, doing event photography, web development, and creating their first Facebook page. New for 2024, I am volunteering with Central Alberta Mountain Hikers as a trip coordinator, leading and planning hikes.

Since 2005, I have had a strong working relationship with Crystal. She worked extremely well without supervision. She was honest, hard working, and consistently met deadlines. She quickly learned the complexities of our business and successfully handled increasing responsibility. She consistently designed quality work for both web and print. Her writing skills played a major role in the success of our communications team.

Although Clear Haven Center closed, Crystal continues to work for me on a part-time basis on small web and communications projects. Should we ever open another rehabilitation facility, I would definitely hire her back full time.

Dr. Terry Orsten, CEO, Clear Haven Centre
Crystal brought an engaging performance to each of her presentations. She is dynamic and very easy to listen to. Crystal has a strong presence and connects well with the audience. She captures audience attention and then creates emotional responses to foster audience participation. She used humour appropriately and spoke clearly.

Crystal's passion is evident and translates well to deliver a strong presentation. Crystal would be an asset to any team that needs someone with strengths in internal presentations or public speaking.
