Krystel Reid Heath, LMSW

Chief Strategist and CEO

Capitol Consulting Strategies, LLC Capitol Academy

I am passionate and intense because I know the consequences of not doing so are too grave.

At the age of 15, I placed myself and my sister in foster care due to abuse. I felt powerless and voiceless. Out of necessity, I learned how to navigate this complex system and the policy-making process and began advocating for myself and my peers. I have never forgotten this experience. It keeps me grounded and powers my relentless pursuit of working to improve communities, organizations and in giving voice to underrepresented issues.

Failure is not an option. There is too much at stake. Small businesses are closing and hurting. We can do a better job at protecting our children and in focusing on preventative measures of child abuse and neglect. Across South Carolina, my home, and across the nation, there is a shortage of quality affordable housing and consequently this has disproportionately affected our veterans, people with mental illness and other vulnerable communities, often resulting in homelessness.

I started my company at 22 because I could not find an opportunity and was told I needed to wait my turn. Over the last 14 years, I have worked to create opportunities and giving voice to issues that are often underrepresented. I have facilitated countless community, political and legislative trainings, and forums, had a live televised political segment, the Political Pulse, and have used my love of policy, research, and strategic planning to enable small businesses, civic organizations and non-profits meet their goals.

My company is rooted in creating opportunities and giving voice to issues that are often underrepresented. This is not just business for me, this is my life’s work.

If you value what I value, I want to work for you to solve these challenges –let’s get to work." –Krystel
