Crystal joined the Concordia family in February of 2019 as a Housekeeper for Concordia of Franklin Park. Since that time, she has filled the need of laundry aide, kitchen aide and cook at both our Franklin Park and Wexford locations. This year Crystal will embark on the next chapter of her career journey – pursuing a RN degree from Butler County Community College!
Crystal told us she chooses to work for Concordia for several reasons, most importantly because she shares the same faith-based values and biblical principles of our organization. She is also appreciative for the career development opportunities that Concordia offers.
“The most appealing opportunity at Concordia is the chance to grow, excel and advance within the organization,” Crystal said. “I have learned several positions, and have applied for an exciting career change as a RN – and Concordia, through Concordia’s BC3 Tuition Assistance Program, is paying for the entirety of my tuition and books! Bless God!”
Crystal said she is motivated to succeed by being the best version of herself so that she can best serve others.
“I best serve our residents by going the extra mile, communicating and helping wherever and whenever I can. I sing songs of Zion all day long to them and for them!”
When she’s not at work, Crystal sure knows how to keep busy! She and her husband are in the process of renovating and refurbishing their 200-year-old house. She also enjoys cooking, gardening and crocheting unique Pittsburgh Steelers blankets. While Crystal has a lot of hobbies and interests that are deserving of her time, she makes sure that she devotes a significant amount of her attention to biblical studies.
“I read a lot of books that help me to understand the God I serve, how to better understand the Word of God and to deepen my relationship with the Lord. I am on the youth leadership team at my church, and I’m currently creating and developing an outreach dance ministry that focuses on unity, the spirit of excellence and ministering unto the Lord.”
