We are fortunate to have her on our team.”

A graduate of Millsaps College, Crisler has volunteered with a number of community organizations, including the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; Applause, Friends of the Arts; Junior League of Jackson; Canopy Children’s Solutions; Phi Theta Kappa; and the Mississippi Children’s Museum. She founded Volunteer Greater Jackson, and The Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership named her Volunteer of the Year in 2015.
