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

The first day I was so nervous! I was a shy person and not used to speaking to people I didn't know.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The people you meet and the stories you hear.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

My proudest moment is right now. It's being able to say that this is my first and only job, which I have been doing for 38 years.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

It will always be the first store I worked at store #445. We had the best times and I still share laughs with former employees.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

It might be scary at first, but take a deep breath and don't be afraid to ask questions. We are a team and help each other every step of the way.

My Sobeys is...

...a place where close friends and good food ideas are born.
