Behind years of success is a narrative of doubt, insecurity and self-destruction. This is her story.

image became more important than meaningful purpose and compassion for others. Soon, her failing marriage would lead her down a path of self-destruction that neither she nor her close loved ones imagined she would venture. Ultimately, Crissy found herself betrayed, alone, empty-handed, and hopeless. She went home and made huge changes within herself. Her close mentor encouraged her, “You’re a phoenix. You went down in flames…much of that your own doing. But, you are rising up and reviving your own life once again.” This time, she would do it with God in the center of it.
Today, Crissy loves to pour her heart into hopeful individuals through her platform, Building Inner Beauty. This program is founded on a desire to inspire women and a heart to edify those around her. Her passion to think positive, believe in yourself, and reach for your dreams resonates with females across the community. Crissy has enjoyed sharing this message as a guest speaker with various like-minded organizations such as National Charity League, Single Parent Advocate, Oomi Women’s Conference, Makeover101, several middle school and high school programs, and many churches in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Her latest project, in collaboration with Colour IQ, is Dare to Grow Texas, an interactive workshop created by women for women.
