Crystal planted her roots in the High Country 17 years ago after moving to Boone to attend Appalachian State University and she never left. She has developed strong bonds within the community. You’ve probably caught her on the ball field or in another sports setting. Crystal has worked closely with special needs adults and coached Special Olympics in the High Country. Her passion is working through the We Can So You Can Foundation’s Camp Healing Waters, a program focused on helping Veterans and their spouses cope with the transition from war to civilian life. Crystal loves Boone and considers it her home. Crystal is currently the General Manager at Appalachian Mountain Brewery.
