A veteran and client, Crane was one of Give an Hour™'s (GAH) first spokespersons, selflessly sharing her story about her struggles with post-traumatic stress and helping her fellow military comrades to see that help is available. Crane is a combat veteran of the United States Army, who served in the fourth rotation of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) in 2003. Since returning home and accepting the fact that she is a disabled veteran, Crane has dedicated her life to helping others. She obtained her Certified Nursing Certificate in 2007 and is currently working toward her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
