What’s the best part of your job?

Leading my awesome team. I started as an intern on the general merchandise team and have made so many relationships and partnerships along the way. The fact that I now get to lead this team and this business for Kroger is an incredible honor.

What inspires your leadership approach?

I have always felt very supported by various mentors, leaders and peers within Kroger, and I feel that the best thing I can do for the Kroger organization and our associates is to pay it forward and support others in the same way. I also always focus on leading with positive influence, and I try to instill this in my team. I am definitely a glass-half-full kind of person, so this naturally translates to my leadership style.
