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

It was a bit intimidating; I moved from working with a staff of just six to a team of more than 55 employees.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The best part is when I see someone receive a piece of rehab equipment that has a positive impact on their daily independence.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

When a client, who I had known since he was five years old, was able to get his driver's licence. We got him a vehicle with hand controls, spinner knobs and other adaptations so that he could drive. We were all so proud and emotional, and the excitement on his face was priceless.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Customer service is the key to success. Make eye contact and say hello, that means a lot to a lot of people.

My Sobeys is...

...my work family, they're some of my closest friends.
