Cristal is from Barbour County, Alabama and believes the best way to relieve stress is to go work on the family farm and spend time in the woods. She is a 2006 Auburn University Alumni and had to do a career change due to an overexposure allergy. She has been working as a licensed insurance agent since 2015 and providing several companies with care and comprehensive coverage. Cristal is happily married to her best friend, Mark Fowler. She spends her free time hunting, hiking, and hanging out with Mark and her two dogs.
