Chris spent over 20 years in sales and leadership with some of the largest healthcare corporations in the world.
Through a broken season, he became desperately addicted to alcohol and made some destructive life choices. With a strong faith, grit, courage and commitment to a plan, his story has become one of recovery and hope. One leadership official noted Chris’ recovery journey as “remarkable.”
Now, his changed life is changing lives. In addition to his efforts with 100 Proof Living and his revitalized career in the healthcare diagnostics industry, he is assigned to an Emergency Department within a university hospital system as a NYS Certified Recovery Peer Advocate for patients with drug overdose and medical admission due to chronic alcoholism.
"I rose from the ashes. I am lead by the belief that God would and did lead me to better days. My story offers hope based in reality and commitment to accountable plans.” - Chris
