Dr. Krystal L. Culler, DBH, M.A.
Founder & Creative Director
Introducing Krystal, Creative Director and Founder of the Virtual Brain Health Center. Under her leadership, her previous organizations gained four awards to recognize innovation within the aging care industry. Honorable mentions for these awards include the International Council on Active Aging, Mather Lifeways Institute on Aging, the American Society on Aging, and the Southern Gerontological Society on Aging.
At the beginning of her career pathway, Dr. Culler, spent just shy of five years in Executive-level positions working for health non-profit organizations. She has over 15 years of experience working with individuals with brain health concerns, their families, and advocacy organizations. Under her leadership, the centers have received four international and national awards from leading organizations in the aging care sector for innovation in brain health programming and community impact. Additionally, she has been recognized through the receipt of five personal leadership awards for her contributions to the field including the Global Brain Health Leaders Award from the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Society, and Global Brain Health Institute, and Crain’s Cleveland Business 40 Under Forty.
Outside of her Virtual Brain Health Center achievements, as a true team player she has been featured in 30+ mainstream media outlets throughout her career, including household names USA Today, New York Times, AARP, Reader’s Digest, and more. Additionally, her successful career has led her to become an invited guest on multiple podcasts and involved in brain health and migraine advocacy work. She serves as a review editor for Frontiers of Psychology of Aging and is a blog contributor for Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond Magazine. Follow her “EngAGE Your Brain!” series.
Mind: Krystal is a Doctor of Behavioral Health with a background in the behavioral sciences (psychology of aging, gerontology, and sociology). She is a Senior Atlantic Fellow with the Global Brain Health Institute, where she was the first scholar from the United States to complete her residency training at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland on dementia prevention and the social determinants of brain health. She has an unwavering commitment to promoting brain health equity to individuals of all ages and the communities she serves.
Body: Krystal is currently prioritizing the restfulness aspects of her brain wellness. For years she has worked to manage her own neurological health issues which impact her sleep. She is also exploring different types of meditation and striving to make this a daily practice. (Drumming is currently her favorite but she prefers this experience with a group!)
Heart: Krystal can typically be found curled up reading a good book (likely related to the brain) with her weighted dog blankets (2 labs and a senior Maltese) and her fat cat. Her adorable, fun, witty nieces and nephews make her heart smile along with her handsome husband Jake.
LeAnne Stuver, M.Ed., BSN
Director of Lifelong Learning
Another warm welcome from LeAnne Stuver, our Director of Lifelong Learning here at the Virtual Brain Health Center. The organization benefits from LeAnne’s two-plus decades of service as Director of a Comprehensive Lifelong Learning Program on a Senior Living Campus. If that wasn’t enough of an achievement, she’s a registered nurse with ten years of hospital experience.
She has taught a vast wealth of educational programs during her career, for both adults and professional audiences. Putting her knowledge into practice, LeAnne released a publication through the American Society on Aging which highlights creating educational opportunities for older adults in a senior living setting.
An asset to the Virtual Brain Health Center, she brings her educational background and innovative practices to all our students, enabling them to successfully achieve their personal brain wellness goals.
Mind: LeAnne has a master’s degree in education with a focus on health education. She is also a trained facilitator for the evidence-based Savvy Caregiver Program. She has first-hand caregiver experience with her live-in aging parents, helping them to maintain their quality of life despite complex health care needs. She is passionate about educating the community in practical ways that they can learn to support their brain health and wellness.
Body: LeAnne walks three miles every morning with a friend. She is also trying to develop a consistent yoga and meditation practice – but this is a work in progress!
Heart: LeAnne loves to read (several different genres) and binge-watch television series online (medical, law, or family dramas). She and her husband Ron are avid soccer fans, having followed their two adult sons through all levels of youth, high school, and college soccer. Her older son is a local high school assistant soccer coach, and her younger son is a professional soccer player – so, the journey continues.
