Crystal Block is excited to be taking on the role of the Program Coordinator/Executive Assistant for Ups and Downs. One thing is for sure; she loves working with the Down syndrome community! For over five years, Crystal has been working with adults with Down syndrome as a support worker and has absolutely loved it. She is frequently blown away by the joy that her clients bring her as well as how much she learns from them. Crystal has administrative experience in many ways, one of which was being the Administrative Assistant and Hospitality Manager for People Are Pearls. She was able to combine her organization with her passion for people in this role. Crystal is so grateful to be able to combine so many of the things she loves in this new role at Ups and Downs!
Crystal is down to earth and friendly. She appreciates clear communication and does her best to be a strong communicator herself. Crystal loves to be outside and go for walks whenever she can!
In her role as Program Coordinator/Executive Assistant she hopes to empower the volunteer community to continue to be incredibly impactful to the families Ups and Downs has been working with for over 34 years. Crystal also works to help Adam maintain the momentum he has built over the years in expanding our reach within the Calgary Down syndrome community and improving the experience at Ups and Downs events.
