Crystal Patrick is a native of Tulsa, and attended Tulsa Public schools her entire life. After graduating from high school in 1997, she attended the University of Oklahoma, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Multidisciplinary Studies, and minored in African and African-American Studies. She has experience in several different fields, including Sales and Marketing for a local retail business, as well as Child Welfare Specialist for the Department of Human Services.
