FORA.tv Speaker - Krystal Ball

A high school All-American, Ball won a full NCAA Division I swimming scholarship to Clemson University. Although Ball enjoyed her time at Clemson, she transferred to UVA to be closer to her family. After earning her degree in Economics and Foreign Affairs, Ball worked for CGI, a major Federal government technology contractor, and assisted in New Orleans recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina.
While at CGI, Ball took night classes at the University of Virginia and became a CPA and soon after started her own Educational Software Design Firm which has clients in the US and abroad.
