Crystal is a Senior Political Digital Director who oversees the online fundraising and campaign objectives for ABD Direct's political clients.
Prior to joining ABD Direct, Crystal spent two cycles at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee overseeing the digital programs of dozens of House campaigns. As Deputy Digital Campaign director in ‘18, she oversaw a team that raised a record-shattering $18 million in small-dollar online contributions for candidates. Her tenure culminated with Democrats winning 40 seats to reclaim the House majority. Prior to her time at the DCCC, Crystal’s work experience includes time at digital and mail consulting firms that served both political, business and nonprofit clients. She believes engaging passionate grassroots activists online is an unrivaled force that can change the world for the better.
Crystal, who is originally from out west, lives in Washington D.C., has bachelor’s degrees in Political Science and Public Relations from Washington State University, and a master’s degree in Political Management from The George Washington University. She once bungee-jumped off a bridge on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and, the next day, was chased by a hippo, the deadliest animal in Africa.
