I started working at the Co-op in 1997 as a cashier. Previously, I co-owned a bicycle shop, did factory work, worked stocking shelves 3rd shift, and did data entry for the Girl Scouts, among other various odd jobs. After arriving at the Co-op, I migrated from cashiering to customer service, Wellness, buying and eventually became the Wellness manager for 10 years. Then, in 2008, I found myself in the GM position, howbeit reluctantly. And here I am.
