Crystal graduated from the University of Mary, Bismarck, with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, and has earned certification for functional capacity evaluations, functional job assessments, and pre-work screens/post-offer employment testing. The entrepreneurial path has always been in the back of Crystal’s mind. After losing her job in 2014, she knew that this was the path for her.


“Finding my niche as an ergonomist is the highlight of my career,” says Crystal.


Though entrepreneurship has its growing pains as one gets started, it has been worth it for Crystal as she works to improve the lives of many around the North Dakota area. Crystal has seen firsthand how an injury affects different individuals and is an expert in work-related injury prevention for every workplace, including industrial, manufacturing, healthcare, and office environments. Crystal’s passion for helping prevent workplace injury began as a business on the side as she worked to pursue her other company. Once Fargo Ergonomics began to gain traction, she quickly realized the value of her work.
