Crystal's story

I grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia near the beach. I was a child full of energy and I continue to have much of the same energy as an adult. I come from a family of farmers and while I did not enjoy being outdoors "working" with my family in the fields when I was younger, I found myself coming back to it as I got older because it reminded me of home. Gardening is so therapeutic to me, almost meditative. I have worked in the mental health field and with adults with neurological disorders for 10 years and my passion for my work comes from my personal struggles with my own learning disabilities and ADHD. I know what it's like not to be understood or to be counted out. My hope for the future is to continue my work and teach my community about the struggles adults face who have neurological disorders.
