Director of Dining Services
Westminster Woods Presbyterian Senior Living
At Westminster Woods Senior Living, managed by Cura Hospitality, dining director Sprowls created a Wots in the Wok meal program for independent living residents. Chefs cook to order from the fully-equipped Wok Wagon, a trailer that travels to four locations around the campus. This chicken stir-fry with assorted vegetables and rice is a favorite for lunch.
