The purpose of Krystal’s Korner is to share poetry and other writings with the hope to connect others.
We believe that this space will be transformative in ways that will allow the reader to feel, reflect, release, and share with others different perspectives they can take on their “fight” or life in general. You are not alone and Krystal’s Korner is here to remind you that Every Day We Fight has your back.
Krystal Baumann is from Farmington, MN. She grew up playing sports and ended up playing D1 hockey for the University of Vermont. Her career was cut short due to injury, so she transferred to Mankato State and eventually Gustavus Adolphus
Throughout college she was a hockey coach for Holy Angels, Farmington, and St. Peter/LeSeur girl’s high school teams.
After college, she obtained a teaching position in Grand Marais, MN. She worked individually with students both in and out of the special education department at the Cook County Public School. Two people she worked with inspired her to pursue a career in mental health. King George and Kyler, thank you for being you.
Soon after enrolling in school she was diagnosed with Chronic Myleoid Leukemia. The diagnosis came when she was 25. At 28, Krystal continues to fight cancer and finish her masters in Clinical Mental Health, with the plan to be a therapist for children and adolescents.
You’ll also find her writing on Krystal’s Korner, smiling on Warrior Wednesday, and spending time with the people she loves most.
