She is the President and Co-founder of TriCon Elite Consulting where she manages the day to day operations of the field consulting and sales teams, though she is most proud of her title as Mom to her seven wonderful children.

Early in her career Cristal worked as a consultant with Microsoft authoring content for internal SMSGR and GTR teams.   This content was used to train internal support engineers and global escalation engineering teams.  

Cristal can be found speaking at Microsoft Ignite, MVPDays, and other conferences and local user groups.   She is extremely active in the community and has recently helped publish a book for other Women MVP’s called Voices from the Data Platform.
