What do you remember most about your first day on the job?

I was a little shy, but my manager was very welcoming.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

Helping people to feel better about themselves; cosmetics is not just about how you look, it’s about how you feel.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

I’m proud to have worked for the same company for 35 years.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

Seeing the young girls people who have worked with me finishing their education and starting their careers or families, and they keep in touch - it’s nice.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Work hard and enjoy.

My Sobeys is...
