Crystal D. Nash, who graduated in 2002, joined Peace Corps after graduation.  After leaving Peace Corps she worked in rural economic development in California.  In a recent email Crystal Nash, stated that “The requirements for collaborative writing, computer/technical skills and just basic statistical math that I learned while pursuing my BA in Economics have been invaluable to me.” 

“I made the cross country move to work in Washington, DC around August of 2013 and have been in "full sprint" work mode since then.”  Crystal currently works as a program analyst for the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington D.C. “I'm a certified Project manager and my career/interests have evolved to more of an IT based project/program management role.”

“The writing components, communication, critical thinking/analysis and team work/building skills that I learned while in college as an economics undergraduate have helped me tremendously.”
