Barnabas Staff & Board of Directors

Crystal Hanna serves as the Executive Director for the Barnabas Horse Foundation, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Crystal is a 20 year executive administrator for Tower & Communication Services, Inc. A tower erection and maintenance company specializing in the broadcast industry for more than 50 years.

In addition to her current position, her background began in the seafood restaurant industry where she trained under the tutelage of her beloved parents for many years. This important training and career taught her responsibility and how to work with others in varying degrees. Crystal also found a love of creating beauty through design and began a business in Christmas and interior design for several years.

She volunteered with the Parents Organization of the private school her child attended for 10 years. Much of that effort focused on fund raising and hospitality events for the school. During this time, she served a term as president of the Parent Organization as well as serving on the Board of Directors of the school.

Crystal has always loved animals. She grew up riding horses and eventually owning two of her own. This love for these animals continues today.

Feeling incredibly blessed by God and being a woman of strong Christian faith, Crystal was searching to find a faith-based organization to become involved with and literally “Googled” equine therapy and found the Barnabas Horse Foundation. The principles and bedrock of the Barnabas Horse Foundation, which is to partner with these wonderful and beautiful creatures to help humans heal, is exactly the type of organization she wants to champion in every way possible.

Crystal is a wife and mom and loves both roles immensely.
