Krystal-Elaine Long moved to Southern California from North Carolina in 2006. Originally studying music and business at Appalachian State University, she later changed focus to anthropology and Chinese, and attained her MA in applied anthropology at California State University, Long Beach. As an anthropologist and user researcher, she has worked in private and non-profit organizations on projects that help businesses and organizations understand their market and make sure that their services or products satisfy a need. Through her personal and professional experiences, Krystal has seen a need for more collaborative and supportive work environments that aim to meet organizational goals while still fostering a cooperative atmosphere. In her free time, she loves watching movies, discovering new places in California, and continues to endure physical therapy to hopefully return to her muay thai gym after several injuries.
