“Cris is one of the most compassionate and caring individuals that you will ever meet. She is passionate about finding what motivates the growth or potential inside of someone; always looking for ways to pull out the best in everyone by promoting their worth and insisting they see it as well,” says Melissa Dillon, Community Relations Coordinator for Arcardian Cove. When the pandemic limited public celebrations and norms, Cris didn’t hesitate planning a virtual graduation ceremony for a member of her culinary team. She couldn’t bear the thought of letting such a milestone pass without recognition and went to extraordinary measures to ensure the ceremony, attendees, refreshments and fanfare were all top-notch. Cris has a knack for injecting energy and positivity into everyday interactions in the most natural and effortless way. We are proud of you, Cris!
