Charissa Christopherson became Head Cook at ALERT in June 2015, after working as a volunteer in the kitchen and other departments for a total of over 5 months. She is the second of 13 children in her family, from Arlington, TX. Charissa operated a bakery out of her home for a short time, and taught piano for 6+ years. She’s been cooking since she was young, and enjoys reading, time with family and friends, fitness, piano, and making food that people enjoy! She is excited to be doing something she loves, alongside others who are striving to know and glorify God.
