About Cristal Grogan

GRAPHICS DESIGNER FOR PREEMIE PARENT ALLIANCE, DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER FOR NICU HELPING HANDS & MYPREEMIE PROGRAM COORDINATOR FOR GRAHAM’S FOUNDATION

With a background in computer forensics, Cristal’s career path took a twist after the traumatic delivery of her son, Seth, at 29 weeks. After navigating NICU life overseas with no support system or proper resources, Cristal pledged to become involved in the preemie community and ensure that no other parent was left in the same desperate situation. 

Cristal is the Graphic Designer for Preemie Parent Alliance, Digital Marketing Manager for NICU Helping Hands, and MyPreemie Program Coordinator for Graham’s Foundation. But it is her role as an advocate and mother to Seth, who inspires her daily, that drives her passion.
