President and CEO Kristina Bouweiri cherishes her time with family, and when the holidays come around, she takes the time to make her five kids’ favorite dishes. For Thanksgiving, she takes a traditional side dish – Sweet Potato Casserole – and adds a tropical twist for a even sweeter experience! It’s a simple addition that personalizes a traditional Thanksgiving side and creates another fond memory for her family’s holiday traditions.
