Crystal became enthralled with Lotusland after going on a tour in 2005 which led to her becoming a docent. She has gone on to co-chair the Lotusland Celebrates Gala four times and ultimately serving seven years on the Lotusland Board of Trustees (2012-2018). Crystal has remained involved at Lotusland as a member of the Governance Committee and recently served on the Search Committee.

She is a longtime Santa Barbara resident and enjoys committing her talents to the benefit of non-profits that serve the public good, especially those related to animals, health, and the environment.
