About Krystle

Krystle Kaul in Ashburn, VA

The granddaughter of Indian immigrants, Krystle knows firsthand the power of the American dream. When her grandfather arrived in the United States, he didn’t have a dime in his pocket. So he got a job as an insurance salesman, and through hard work and perseverance, he created a good life for his family.
Krystle has spent her life protecting the country that welcomed her grandparents with open arms. From CENTCOM to the Pentagon,Middle East from South Asia, Krystle has stood up for her country where the threats are greatest and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
A national leader in the defense and intelligence community, she served as a Director (GS-15) of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency at DOD, the Director of Strategic Communications of the U.S. Air Force and NATO for General Dynamics Information Technology, and as an Intelligence Political-Military Expert at U.S. Central Command.
She has traveled to 71 countries, and speaks eight languages including Hindi, Urdu, Spanish, Arabic, Punjabi, Italian, and Dari. She also holds an active Top Secret/SCI security clearance with polygraph.

Within a year of Donald Trump taking office, Secretary of Defense General Mattis resigned and Krystle also left her position shortly thereafter.
Determined to continue to make a difference, she opened a small business that assists 8(a) firms, disabled veteran and women-owned businesses, as well as medium to large companies in helping them to apply their solutions to safeguard the U.S. Additionally, she is a Head Facilitator for MIT's Executive Education programs via 2U.
A national leader in the intelligence community, small business owner, and the proud granddaughter of immigrants, Krystle would be only the second Indian American woman ever elected to Congress. She is running to keep America safe in a world that gets more dangerous every day, and to make sure the next generation of Virginians has the same opportunities her grandfather did, growing up in a country where everyone, no matter who you are or what you look like, has the chance to make a good living, raise a family, and create an American dream of their own.
Krystle graduated with a B.A. from American University, and advanced degrees from Brown University and Johns Hopkins University (SAIS).
She lives in Ashburn, VA, and loves baking, cooking and spending quality time with her family and friends.
