Crystal graduated from BGM High School in 2011, and from Kirkwood College in Cedar Rapids in 2019. She had started working for Bailey's Funny Farm in 2012, returning again in 2015 as a groomer and to handle client reception.
She has been Grinnell-raised her entire life. Growing up as an only child on a small farm with a variety of animals, her passion for animals blossomed at a young age. In her free time, she enjoys riding horses, camping with her family, drawing, and playing on Xbox. She also loves to be creative and crafty, particularly by making collar bows and bandanas for our clients!
Crystal has 6 four-legged kids; two dogs named Hugo and Nala, a cat named Tate, Minerva the leopard gecko, and two DEW ferrets named Mischa and Maya.
