Search engines drive most of the internet's traffic and greatly influence how fast a business can grow. That’s why Crystal is so important to us. In the near future, she’ll be taking over the SEO department here at Gold Coast, and it’ll be her job to make sure our clients get the right visitors (and a lot of them!) With a background in web development and marketing, this line of work comes naturally to her.
Outside of the office, Crystal is a keen cook, mother of two young kids, and also a loving wife. She loves Italian food, especially when she doesn’t have to clean it up after. Crystal finds the time to exercise too. With regular family sports, and a Zumba class here and there, it doesn’t matter how many flights of stairs there are - she’s never out of breath.
Gianna is a student at Cal Lutheran University. She is our intern for video and social media. In her spare time she loves playing tennis.
