Crista enjoyed over two decades of creativity as a lead graphic designer for a large marketing firm. While making her way up the ladder of success she yearned for an outlet where she could pursue her first love, painting. While she will always look back fondly on her extensive schooling, earning several degrees and certifications. She knew that by going back to what originally motivated her, she could design a personalized event that would be transformative to all who took part. She trained tirelessly to obtain the rank of Reiki Master and has worked to become certified in Healing with the Arts. She is passionate about teaching others how to pull themselves out of the darkness she once called home.
