Q: Tell us a little about your role at KeHE and how it’s changed over the years.

A: Our dedication to our people and also our emphasis and actions to serve others.
Q: During your time with KeHE, what milestones are you most proud to have been a part of?

Q: What legacy do you hope to leave behind with KeHE?
A: That I am very dedicated to my job, my company and my customers, that I will do whatever it takes to make all parties happy or at least content, and that I am fair and factual when it comes to decision making. I also hope those who have worked closely with me will remember all my quirky sayings.
