Crystal Czubernat

Director of eLearning
I have a BA in Secondary Education and English Literature, a MA in Counseling Psychology, a MA in Curriculum and Instruction, and am in my final year of completing my PhD in Organizational Leadership from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. After beginning my career as a high school teacher, I worked as a mental health counselor before moving to higher education. I live with my wife and our two wildly energetic toddler twins, Deacon and Dylan. Fun fact: I’m learning to surf and am a big fan of Bob Dylan and Taylor Swift.

I have taught at OFL for 11 years and I love helping students succeed. I enjoy paintings and photos, of all kinds—they allow us to see the world through other people’s eyes. Fun facts: I have ridden in a hot air balloon, on a motorcycle, driven to Alaska, and I love to scuba dive!

Monica Williams

I received my undergraduate degree at CSULB and graduate degree from Chapman University and have been in education for seven years. I feel lucky to be a part of an organization that gives students a second shot at education. I enjoy hiking and attending as many music events as possible. Fun fact about me: I try to travel to a new place at least once per week. I have so far been to seven different countries: Australia, Mexico, Cambodia, Vietnam, Greece, Italy, and Jamaica.
