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

I was 16 years old. I remember I was very shy and very nervous but everyone was very nice. I didn't think I'd be staying 25 years but I've enjoyed it and stayed.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The best part of working at Sobeys are the customers and my co-workers. A few co-workers have been together from the beginning and we still work together.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

My proudest moment was when I was asked to be full-time employee.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

This is a great place to work.

Who do you most admire?

My dad.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Anywhere with a hot climate.

My Sobeys is...

...a big part of my life. It's my second family.
