Intern Story: Chris grew up without the coaching or cooking skills to lead a healthy lifestyle. He battled multiple health problems, like asthma and high blood pressure, and he feared his little brother might experience the same challenges.
Determined to change things, Chris committed to a gym routine and applied to Sprouts. As a Chef Trainee at Mama Oakland, he’ll set an example for his brother by developing his skills in the kitchen and learning healthy recipes he can cook at home. He looks forward to sharing stories, techniques, and home-cooked meals with his family.
