How long have you been working at Heinen’s?
14 years! I can’t believe it. Heinen’s is a great place to work and they have been VERY good to me over the years. I really just can’t picture myself working anywhere else.
What’s your favorite part about working in the bakery?
My favorite part is simply how much fun we have. I like to create a work environment where everything that needs to be done gets done, but also where you can have fun doing so. This department leaves you with a great sense of pride in your accomplishments.
Do you cook?
When I’m home! I have school in the evenings, so my husband, Marc, does quite a bit of the cooking for our family. My daughter, my love, has a few favorite dishes that have become very frequent.
What are you going to school for?
Business Management. I absolutely love learning about the business world. Heinen’s sent me in the direction of wanting to be the best manager I could be. I now know exactly what I want to do, and that is to continue my career right here at Heinens!
You work in a grocery store so you’re around food all the time. What are 5 ingredients that are always in your kitchen?
Always on hand are chicken breasts, ground turkey, olive oil, onions and sugar in the raw on-hand. These are just a few, I am constantly picking up groceries, love this store!
It’s your day off. What are you spending your time doing?
I start every day I can by taking my other love, my 1 ½ year old Golden Doodle, Carly, for a run. I usually take one day to spend time with my daughter, nieces and nephews. I try to get my best friend time in with my amazing sisters when possible, and I absolutely love the days I get to spend with my husband. If everyone is busy then I always have homework to keep me busy!
