As a truck driver, I am still able to be home every night with my family.

Having my supervisors sup- port me when I wanted to further my training to get my Class 1 driver's licence and then to be able to drive the new trucks.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

Who in the world do you most admire? My dad Bill Coleman. He taught me to drive heavy equipment at age five on the family farm. I got my work ethic from him.
