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

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?
The best part of working at Sobeys is being able to grow as the company grows.
What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?
I have had many proud moments, but the proudest was when I delivered on our goal of winning 50% of the market share of the total long-term care market in Atlantic Canada.
What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?
Always place the customer first and arrange whatever pieces that come your way.
Who do you most admire?
I have many people, but Nelson Mandela has been my hero since childhood.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Without exception, I would live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I love it here.
