Dr. Krystal L.Culler, DBH, MA

Introducing Krystal, Founder & Creative Director of Virtual Brain Health Center. At the beginning of her career pathway, Dr Culler spent just shy of eight years in Executive-level positions working for health non-profit and wellness organizations. She has 20 years-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.

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. Additionally, she has been recognized through the receipt of five personal leadership awards for her contributions to the field including the Integrated Health Excellence Award (2022), Global Brain Health Leaders Award (2019) from the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Society, and Global Brain Health Institute, and Crain’s Cleveland Business 40 Under Forty (2017).


She is a featured expert in over 40+ mainstream media features including USA Today, the New York Times, AARP, Thrive Global, Reader’s Digest and many more! She has over 40 peer- reviewed presentations at professional conferences and she has educated thousands of adults and professionals on a variety of topics related to brain health and wellness. She is a current blog contributor to Northeast Ohio Boomer & Beyond Magazine (EngAGE Your Brain!) and Review Editor for Frontiers in Psychology of Aging.


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 promote brain health equity to individuals of all ages and the communities she serves.


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!)


Krystal can typically be found curled up reading a good book (likely related to the brain) with her weighted dog blankets and fat cat. Her adorable, fun, witty nieces and nephews make her heart smile along with her handsome husband Jake.
