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

I remember being excited to start my career as a professional, with the responsibility and opportunities that went with that. I knew I was working for the company that I thought did pharmacy best.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

The opportunities I have had to learn and grow, and for the interesting, smart people I have met and worked with across the country. It has been fascinating and challenging to see how things change; when I started 25 years ago, pharmacists didn't prescribe or give injections.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Give your best, enjoy your work and take any opportunity to learn and develop. Jump in, try it and learn from it.

Who do you most admire?

My son; he does big scary things and doesn't let that faze him at all.

My Sobeys is...

...about great pharmacy experiences for both clients and staff.
