Crystal owns a PR Firm that caters to a large portfolio of clients. She also owns a few online newspapers/blogs, which include a patriotic newspaper (that is 12 years-old with subscribers in 31 states and a few countries), a military newspaper, and a few South Texas Newspapers, as well as a small real estate rental business. Crystal’s love for the military, and those who wear a uniform to protect and serve, comes from a family history steeped in the American tradition of serving our country; a passion that runs deep in her family roots. With this burning desire in her heart to serve, Crystal worked for the Department of State (DOS) in Baghdad, Iraq from 2004-2006. She served as a liaison officer to the Ambassador to Iraq, John Negroponte, and received a letter of commendation from the DOS. It was this experience that sparked the fire in her to found an organization that serves veterans. Noticing the gap between what our wounded veterans NEDD and what they are afforded, Crystal began a mission to provide better wheelchair solutions that would allow wounded veterans and first responders to regain some of their independence and give them the ability to ROLL STRONG!
