I AM: Liberal| Affirming| Body-Positive

Welcome to 

Crystal Saiyge Consulting, llc

My journey began as a bossy 10 year-old writer in the DMV. Fast-forward to my teen years, and I was an art student at St. John's College High School in Dc, making found-object sculptures and poetry. My time was divided between volleyball and art until I graduated college. 

In my 20s, I was a Communications student at Cheyney University of PA.

( the first HBCU)

Graduating 7th in my class of 200, I skipped off with a Bachelor of Arts, lots of honor cords and awards. 

I, then, worked as a live-in counselor at a group home before going to graduate school.

I dabbled in anthropology, neuroscience, and first amendment law at American University and the Newseum's Religious Freedom Institute, respectively. 

I eventually graduated from Wesley Seminary with a Masters of Theological Studies. My thesis was an ethnography on the God-brain and the religiosity of Black women.

I can be found on file in Wesley's library. 

I spent my 3 years in seminary as an organizer-activist-minister at The Sanctuaries, Dc which was an interfaith non-non-profit for social justice, arts and spirituality. This picture <-- is at an laid-back church type of event I led with my partners and was eventually filmed by CBS in a special called Faith, Spirituality, and the Future. 

Now I am an itinerant minister in the Unitarian Universalist faith which is a big group of seekers that is united by commitment instead of doctrines.

I specifically am agnostic and practice Buddhism, while people surrounding me can be anything from Orthodox Jewish to Atheist. We celebrate everyone's faith together. 

I consult across various disciplines

(check out my long-term client/ company that I run Lumbricina.org) and do seasonal work as a recreation speciality instructor for the Parks &Rec Dept. 

I have two kiddos and a husband, which remains my favorite ministry.
