Decking The Halls With Family Boundaries: Navigating Challenging Relationships
Chris Ray (he/him)
I have been in the service industry as BOH and FOH for over three decades, from local pizza joints to fine dining. Joining CHOW for me was a natural move because I have experienced the ebbs and flows of hospitality and the effect they have had on my mental and physical health. Facing the hard truth that I needed to address my struggles with drugs and alcohol has been the most challenging and rewarding adventures I have taken on. With almost five years in active recovery, I am so grateful and love to share my experience,strength, and hope.
Schaeffer Ware (he/him)
I entered the hospitality industry over 10 years ago and have both experienced and witnessed the affect the industry has on a person. Until joining CHOW I lacked a support system and didn’t have any tools to give to my peers. CHOW has given me the ability to better show up for myself and my peers. I strive to help provide spaces that are safe and supportive for industry folks as well as bring wellness-focused practices into my workplace to be a part of a healthier hospitality industry.
