Returning home Chrystal began working at Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater as their Visitor Service's Coordinator, growing into the field of special events and social media for business. Eventually, in these positions she was able to expand the community relationships, bring attention to Arena’s Accessibility Department, and help to manage over 4 years of special events in the Mead Center.
