Crystal Perez was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. She received her B.A. in Business Law from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. The most impactful aspect of her undergraduate career was her involvement within the Hispanic Business Student’s Association (HBSA) at ASU. She graduated as president of the organization leading a 14-member executive board who focused on offering leadership, professional development, and social opportunities to the Hispanic community. She also served as a Residential Assistant (RA) for 3 years where the team focused on promoting diversity and inclusion to incoming freshman. In her free time, Crystal enjoys practicing Mariachi music on her violin. She is a daughter of immigrants who came from the humble town of Colonia Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Her parents struggled to give her the opportunities that she has today as a U.S. Citizen. Crystal dedicates everything she does to her loving mother and is passionate about pursuing a career as an attorney to help people like her family.
