Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.

Krystal is a resourceful go-getter. From financing and establishing water systems in a developing country to protesting ISO-NE’s FCA 14 qualification process on behalf of battery storage developers, Krystal’s multi-disciplinary thinking and strategy skills make her an invaluable asset to her clients. As a regulatory and transactional attorney specializing in public utility regulation and renewable energy development, Krystal is adept at navigating the regulatory landscape at the state and federal level, with experience representing energy companies before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and in court proceedings.

On the business side, Krystal’s MBA and decade of experience at a Fortune 500 company driving strategic growth and leading diverse teams has enabled her to skillfully navigate technical, legal, business and accounting nuances to develop creative and strategic solutions to complex problems. Simply put, she understands the business of business.

She also understands the human side of business. As a former Peace Corps Volunteer, Krystal has experienced firsthand the importance of treating others with respect and engaging clients, regulators, and counterparties on a human level. That makes her a down-to earth and approachable advocate who partners with you—to determine the best course of action, then pilot you to success.

But that’s not all. Krystal is also very experienced in:

  • Contract Drafting and Negotiations
  • Executive Change Management
  • Regulatory Practice
  • Midstream Commercial Transactions
  • Data Privacy and Security
  • Project Management
  • Manufacturing Operations
  • Process Engineering
  • Strategy Development and Planning

In her former life, Krystal was:

  • An energy attorney at a local Portland Law Firm
  • A law clerk for the Portland District Court
  • A Manager at Deere & Company in Moline, IL
  • A business consultant
  • A Peace Core volunteer

When Krystal isn’t working, she is…

Indulging her inner geek by reading leadership books, blogs and articles that expand her worldview, or expressing her creativity by playing the guitar or piano and singing. Krystal is also a 2011 Appalachian Trail thru-hiker whose next challenge is to conquer New Hampshire’s 4000-footers.
