I adore working for this company; we’re a big family. I have an extraordinary team and enjoy seeing my colleagues succeed. I also appreciate the hard work our retailers have done for our customers these past few years amidst a labour shortage.

What's the best advice you ever received? 

A few years back, someone advised me to transform challenges into opportunities. This has brought about wonderful surprises while keeping me connected to achieving positive results.

What's your career highlight?

Evolving within the same company while keeping my passion over many years. I’m proud of our core values.

What excites you most about the future of this channel? 

With new opportunities, innovative technology, adapting to new generations of customers, electric vehicles—it’ll be interesting to watch the c-store and gas industries evolve in the coming years.

How do you define yourself as a leader?

I always listen to my employees. I love collaborating with them with total transparency so we can achieve our common goals in the field. I’m part of the team! I’m compassionate with everyone and always keep a sense of humour.
