As a graduate of the final cohort of TIY (shout-out to the Ocho!), Crystal is a customer service guru turned Front End Developer. When she’s not attending meet-ups and conferences, Crystal can be seen spending time with her husband, Nick, and cuddling her rescue beagles, Arya and Sansa. While a sense of community can be fostered many places and in many ways, SDG proves to be a safe haven, not just for coding, but for life in general. Toni, Jason, Gavin, and Mark have created a diverse, inclusive and tight-knit squad that Crystal can't help but support and be a part of.
