Christal Swigart
Director of Communications

Christal comes to Bethel from Platteville, Wisconsin, where she previously worked as a Senior Media Specialist for the University of Wisconsin-Platteville for over 12 years. She graduated from UW-Platteville in 2002 with a degree in Communications with an emphasis in Imaging and Photography. She is excited to start her new journey at Bethel.  

Christal is very passionate about helping people. She started out volunteering as a Big Sister and that progressed into becoming a foster parent. Christal has been a foster parent since 2013 and has fostered many children during that time.

In her spare time she enjoys watching sports and movies, photography and traveling. You also might see her cheering for the Florida Gators – though she is a huge Badger fan as well.
