May Contractor of the Month: Crystal Coulson

Where did you grow up? Where did you go to college and what did you study?
I grew up in Indiana but moved to Chicago for school where I studied fashion marketing.

What did (or do!) you want to be when you grow up? How did you get into marketing and
communications?

I have always loved theater and the arts. I was drawn to art school where I studied fashion
marketing. This satiated my analytical mind and creative thirst.

What do you like to do for fun?
Travel! I love studying other cultures. My favorite place is Spain.

Favorite food? Drink?
A Greek lemon soup called Avgolemono, sooo good! Favorite drink is coffee, of course. 🙂

One bucket list destination…
An African safari in Tanzania.

What’s the best advice a manager has ever given you?
My old boss, a forward-thinking tech innovator once said, “Never let the fear of failure alone
keep you from trying something new” which I apply to this day.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in their career?
Take a position that will provide you with the most growth, find a great mentor, fail fast and apply the lessons, work smart and find gratitude every day for what you have.

What work accomplishments are you most proud of?
Starting a traveling yoga and therapeutic massage company for seniors in assisted living
facilities. Completely rewarding.

What do you like about working for TorchLight?
The people are wonderful! 🙂
