I grew up in Los Angeles, relocated to Oregon for the clean air, a college education, and the exposure to refreshing new ideas and opportunities. My hope for WVSFA: endless progress towards the pursuit of achieving sustainability and local responsibility for businesses.

I have been volunteering with WVSFA since 2015 at Fun with Fermentation festival. After landing a career in Eugene that has my feet grounded here, I decided to join the board. It is my commitment to the community to ensure that our access to organic, local product is sustained for generations to come. I hope to see the regional food branding efforts come to fruition and I would like to see WVSFA evolve into a great platform for our member business' to come together to rise up and grow our food community in Oregon.

Everyone eats. We all have a food story, which makes our food system work so powerful. After working to promote local farms for over a decade and being a partner in the genesis of Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted, I have joined the WVSFA board to see our regional food brand launched!

I was born and raised in Eugene so my roots are deep in this community. I have managed multiple businesses in the area for years and love the connection I have built in that time. Really just wanting to involve myself further in the ethos that I believe and live. Local, clean, and sustainable. I hope that we can keep building momentum in this community and have the ability to educate more people about the amazing benefits of living in this place we call home.

Crystal Rose Bryan

Marketing Manager, Willamette Valley Grown & Crafted
I spent my formative years on the McKenzie River and I could not be more thrilled to be back in such a special place. Having worked as publicist in Hollywood for nearly a decade, I happily re-prioritized and changed my trajectory working in the renewable energy and organic food industries. I have a passion for socioeconomic solutions that have the potential to reinvigorate communities. Locally produced food is a solution that connects us!
