Crystal is a Certified Integrative Nutritionist, Functional Wellness Coach, Health Educator, speaker, author and advocate leading thousands of clients, students and followers from around the world in a holistic revolution to fuel their potential in moving to new levels of wellness: Nourish. Nurture. Sustain.
Her wellness philosophy is one that looks at the total person: “Nourishment goes beyond your plate.” When she is working with clients, she focuses on the full spectrum–physical, mental, emotional, spiritual wellness of the individual. She believes that since people are multi-dimensional, health has be addressed with a multi-faceted approach.
After creating a transformative brand, to further her mission through community engagement, advocacy and diplomacy, she wanted to do her part by expanding Synergy through her charities initiatives to provide change, “GROWING UP GROWING.” With an understanding that limited access to nutritious food and proper nutrition education is systematic, structural and institutional racism. Growing Up Growing not only provides community gardens for youth within their neighborhoods but also offers educational workshops giving social instructions and interactions around the food that they are growing–potentially leading to economic development and sustainability within that community.
Crystal is available for nutrition consulting, wellness counseling, health coaching, conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and retreats. Learn more about Crystal and her services here.
