About Krystina Jackson

Krystina Jackson, Ms. Wheelchair California 2018

Krystina Jackson, a northern California resident for 27 years, earned the title of Ms. Wheelchair California in March of 2018.

With a background in corporate finance and a BS in Business Administration, Krystina is passionate about encouraging women with  varying abilities to pursue their passions fearlessly and “Lean In” or “Roll In” to not only the board room but any space in which they can envision themselves. A Bay Area resident, Krystina has been inspired by Silicone Valley movers and shakers from Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg to San Francisco’s newly elected Mayor, London Breed. Krystina share’s her life and her work on multiple social media platforms as a way to inform and educate others on celebrating life with disabilities and the importance of working hard to contribute to the community of over 54 million Americans living with disabilities.

Krystina is committed to transforming social response, advancing public policy, and strengthening community collaborations for people with disabilities in their quest for financial independence through forging successful careers in the field they choose. Her tenacity and perseverance guides her well as she navigates the waters of entrepreneurship in the Silicone Valley while growing her Disability Accessories startup G.U.S.T.O.

G.U.S.T.O is her recipe for personal achievement, which stands for: Grit, U( you, the customer), Spark, Tenacity and Optimism. Sometimes all it takes is a spark to change the direction of our life. With her platform to encourage women with varying abilities to pursue their passions fearlessly, Krystina is hoping to spark a Social revolution that will result in economic expansion. A revolution accessible to everyone.
