Introducing Enrollment Program Leaders

We are so thrilled that the Fall Session is starting off soon for all our enrollment programs! We are thrilled to be offering GiGiFIT Kids, GiGi’s Kitchen Kids, and GiGi’s Kitchen Adult this Fall! These 15-week enrollment programs are a big commitment for our families as well as our volunteers and we know that many best of all moments are on the way! We wanted to take a moment to introduce our new program leaders to our Virtual family.

“Hi! My name is Chloe. I’m 23 years old and am currently working to become a genetic counselor. I went to UCLA, I love hiking, animals, and the beach! I’m so excited to work with all of you and think we’re going to have a great time together!”
