She has been a guest performer with It’s Personal onstage, showcasing her original scripted work and she also starred as Cara in The Kiss, a radio play produced by the Distilled Theatre Company. Her play Más Cara will be produced at The Vortex in Austin, Texas in October 2019, had a workshop reading with Teatro Vivo in Austin, Texas in February 2016, and was included in the 50 Playwrights Project's list of the Best Unproduced Latinx Plays of 2017.

Krysta is known for her effervescence, tenacity, and quick thinking. With a twinkle in her eye and an inviting smile, she’s leaves a bit of sparkle wherever she goes, with whomever she meets. Between rehearsals, performances, recording sessions, auditions, and classes you can typically find her dancing, writing snail mail in a coffee shop, or trying out dairy free recipes from the Minimalist Baker.
