Crystal is responsible for both the coordination of AUCD's national technical assistance contract with MCHB for the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) Programs and for the production and dissemination of many of AUCD's publications and resources.

As the Materials Development Coordinator, Crystal oversees the design and publication of resources, information, and products disseminated by the Association, both in hard copy and electronic media. She has designed and implemented a wholly electronic grant application and review system for AUCD and has experience in internet applications, including the recent redesign of the Association's website.

In previous experience, Crystal was a trainee at the Waisman Center LEND and worked for the Waisman Center UCEDD's Community Outreach and Training Offices developing and coordinating courses, activities, and community events for people with disabilities, their families, and support personnel.
