There are two types of Nova Scotians: those who were born here and those who wish they were. Chrystal belongs to the former category, having been brought into the world on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. Having traveled the world for business and pleasure, her heart belongs here! She comes from a large, close-knit family that helped her develop into a well-rounded, resilient, and compassionate individual.
More than two decades of professional project management and consulting has given her a strong background in client services. Since 2011, Chrystal has been President of her own Nova Scotia-based consulting firm. As a graduate of Dalhousie University she earned degrees in Geology and Biology (honors) and is a former registered Professional Geoscientist with the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Nova Scotia (APGNS). She is Past President of this esteemed association and served as a Director of Geoscientists Canada. She continues to volunteer on the executive council of APGNS.
To Chrystal, community is very important and she adheres to the school of thought that was best expressed by playwright George Bernard Shaw who said his life belongs to the whole community. He added, As long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. The harder I work, the more I live. To that end, she enjoys volunteering at Memory Lane Heritage Village and various other local charities.
She is a competitive person by nature and likes to win. As a competitive rower and runner who has taken part in international rowing competitions and marathons. Chrystal follows a popular athlete's mantra that has carried on into her work and life: Good. Better. Best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. She loves all outdoor activities, including hiking and biking on the wonderful trails this province offers to those who appreciate a wholesome and natural lifestyle. Chrystal knows and loves this province and is happiest when helping people decide what they want and then assisting them to make it happen. A Home is where your story begins.
