Judyth Piazza Interviews Crystal Curry, Managing Editor of RGV +Beyond Arts & More Magazine

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Crystal L. Curry joined RGV +Beyond Arts & More Magazine, in Administration, in early April 2013. She quickly fell in love with the magazine and worked her way up to Managing Editor for RGV + Beyond Arts Magazine. She is currently responsible for the day to day operations of the magazine which include working closely with the writers, photographers and the magazine graphics design team, all to ensure a fresh and exciting monthly product.

Crystal first started working with the Harlingen Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in 2001 as a Business Development coordinator, eventually being appointed Interim Executive Director in 2011.  She was there for 10 years and gained a vast amount of experiences and knowledge from her daily organizing of fundraising events, marketing, graphic design, networking, business memberships and retention.

As a young woman, Crystal graduated from Harlingen High School South where she was an All-Star student and athlete. She went on to play internationally and attributes these experiences with her ability to work as a team and her enthusiasm for everything she does. She went on to attend Texas State Technical College in Harlingen for Digital Media Technology.

Crystal, along with her husband John C. Curry and their three children, Emma 6, Harley 2, and CJ 1, happily reside in Harlingen, TX.
