Elginista is written by Crysta Anderson of Elgin, IL. Crysta lives in an old house that requires constant care and feeding and is embarking on all kinds of adventures, from training to be a runner to teaching herself how to cook, garden and live a full, satisfying life. She’s a graduate student in Northwestern’s Integrated Marketing Communications program.
At her day job, Crysta writes and manages social media strategy for a major software company, usually working from the natural light of her home office.
By night (and weekend), she is very involved with her neighborhood and Elgin, the “city in the suburbs.” She is president of the South West Area Neighbors. Read more about her love of Elgin.
