Krystal’s professional experience spans multiple geographies and sectors, including peace-building and conflict transformation in post-war societies, co-designing reconciliation programming with Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, the development of community engagement and public dialogue practices in multiple contexts, and leading the development of strategic partnerships that bring together private sector and community partners in the areas of poverty reduction, gender equity, and climate action.
Across these varied backdrops, Krystal has applied a highly engaged, community-centered approach to her work. As a practiced process designer, facilitator, and strategist, Krystal works with collaborative methods to deepen understanding from multiple perspectives, reframe problems, and generate shared solutions. At the center of her work is a passion for bringing diverse voices around issues that matter and asking, “what might we do together?”
Krystal holds a Masters of Social Science in Peace and Conflict Research from Uppsala University, where she served as a Rotary International Peace Fellow. She also holds certifications in mediation and conflict transformation, IAP2, and design thinking practices.
