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

I remember being excited to start my career as a pharmacist.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The best part of working at Sobeys is being able to innovate and build the “best in class” pharmacy solutions.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

My proudest moment was walking a kilometre through waist deep snow to meet a colleague so that we could drive to the office to fax a 50-page proposal that was due that day during the White Juan snow storm.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Get enough sleep, be kind, be a problem solver and ask your pharmacist.

Who do you most admire?

My children.

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

St. Margarets Bay, Nova Scotia.

My Sobeys is...

...where you can bring a squirrel to work and your colleague will help you shoo it outside.
