About

Hi! My name is Chrissa, thanks for taking the time to invest in your family by checking out our suggestions at Flavored Living. I was inspired to create this blog after discovering the importance of adding “flavor” to everyday life in ways that encourage both personal happiness and positive family experiences.

I work as a professional scientist in the biopharmaceutical industry, leading a talented team of scientists to develop new therapies for rare genetic disorders. After a decade and a half of training I found myself with a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, a demanding career, a sassy toddler and a spouse with a career as equally as demanding as mine. My personal goal is to give 100% in all areas on my life, making sure that both professional and personal areas flourish and are enjoyable while avoiding burnout. Let’s face it, raising a family these days is difficult! Regardless of whether parents work outside of the home or stay home to raise the family full time, it’s so easy to get caught up in a routine and lose the excitement and flavors that life affords us. In order to escape our own family’s grey and boring routine, we have had to create (not find) balance between work and fun. We incorporate a sense of adventure and fun into work and tasks around the house and prioritize time by investing in only the most fruitful adventures, which includes doing things together as a family! This has made my busy, stressful and productive life more flavorful and it’s my joy to share everything that I have learned with you.
