1. What brought you to Kauai and how did you get involved with Chicken in a Barrel?
“I came to Kauai for my first semester of Bible college with Calvary Chapel. After that semester I decided to stay out for another year to be part of a youth ministry called On the Edge, and we hosted our camps at Makanalani. I left after a year to finish Bible college, and within the past year and a half I graduated, got married, moved back on the island, and started working with Makanalani. I have only recently got involved with Chicken in a Barrel. Before, I managed JoJo’s, and over these past 4 months I’ve had the amazing opportunity to manage Chicken in a Barrel.”
2. What has been your favorite part about managing?
“My favorite part about managing has to be the people that I work with. As of now, I currently work with two of my best friends and I continue to make friends with all of my coworkers.”
3. What has been the most difficult?
“The most difficult thing about managing has been my lack of experience. I’ve never managed a restaurant and I’m just learning as I go.”
4. How has being here impacted your life?
“Being here in Kauai with my family has strengthened our desire to make Jesus known. We know people need Jesus everywhere, and although our hearts yearn to help families on the west side, I am able to impact others through work every day.”
