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

I was only 14 years old and I got the job because my mother knew the manager. I was scared because I wanted to make sure I met Mom?s expectations.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

I love interacting with people. You get to know your regulars and their families, and I know the kids by name; I love to make them smile.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

Being dedicated to the job for 25 years.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

We did a charity fundraiser and I got a pie to the face.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Keep it real, be yourself, and always remember to have fun.

My Sobeys is...

...a great place to work.
