Roche Bros. Supermarkets, Inc.
Store Manager, Wellesley

Years with the company: I have worked for the company for 22 years, starting as a cashier.

Education: I graduated from the Mission Church High School in Boston, MA

Mentors and how have they assisted you in your career: Over the past 5 years Aimee Morgida has been a mentor to me. Aimee has been instrumental in helping me to grow professionally and showing me how to become a better team leader. She has also shown me the benefits and results of good mentoring.

What are you most proud of in your career achievements? Do you have a defining moment of your career to date? One of my proudest achievements and defining moments was being nominated and winning the FMI Store Manager of the Year in 2012.  What I am most proud of is that my associates know that I am a team player. They also know that I am always available to them, be it for a work situation or a personal problem. I have been told that my associates respect and admire me and want to work with me.

Most challenging part of your job: The most challenging part of my job is having to have the mindset that no two days are ever the same.  I have to be able to multi-task while thinking on my feet, while still providing outstanding Customer Service.

Advice for upcoming younger executives: My advice for upcoming managers is to make sure that your team knows that you’re a part of them. Jump in when necessary, help as needed, listen to what they say & have a good time doing the job. Also, remember to  say ‘Thank-You’ and mean it.

Hobbies: My husband & 2 daughters, my family and spending time on the beach of York, ME.
