Crystal Bardwell joined the Family Chiropractic team in the spring of 2020 bringing with her several years of experience as an administrator. Her original career path was focused on children and she loved the challenges that came with it. She taught preschool, worked as Education Assistant and even a Speech and Language Therapist’s assistant. When budget cuts forced Crystal to look at other avenues that were of interest to her, she signed on with Tervita Corporation, a major player in the oil and gas industry. She worked as the administrator for the Big Valley office for 10 years and sharpened her skills as a front end worker.
Crystal and her husband love country life on their acreage where she can enjoy gardening and woodworking when she’s not relaxing on the deck admiring the scenery and wildlife. She also enjoys spending time with their two adult children that live within an hours’ drive of home.
