What’s the best part of your job?
Creating content that helps people make changes that last a lifetime. I am grateful that I can pursue this passion within my position at Albertsons Cos. It warms my heart to engage our shoppers in ways that inspire and delight them.
What inspires your leadership approach?
I’ve been a consultant most of my career, which requires constant collaboration, innovation and evaluation, so perhaps that inspired my approach. A great leader collaborates with her team and intentionally gets her hands dirty and goes into the trenches, because in my experience, it is in these moments—elbow to elbow—where the magic happens. I am able to see what is resonating with our shoppers and what is realistic to expect from the dietitians implementing our programs. A great leader also gives credit to those around her and expresses her appreciation whenever possible. I strive every day to be this type of leader.
What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry?
In this technology-driven society in which we live, I cherish the feeling of community that is created every day in our stores and with our different wellness and pharmacy initiatives.
