I started working for Bartells the summer of 2000, working part-time as a cashier while I was in college. I got promoted to 2nd Assistant Manager in 2003, and then Assistant Manager in 2004. In 2007, I became a Store Manager, working at both the Wallingford and Roosevelt locations. Then in 2016 I accepted a position of Training Specialist at the office.

What I love about working for Bartells is you have a voice no matter your title. I’ve always been able to share my ideas, and I’ve often seen them come to fruition. Creative thinking and community engagement are highly encouraged and supported.

As Training Specialist, my goals is to give each store the tools they need to find their own voice, and make every shopping experience engaging and personal. Our stores aren’t cookie-cutter because our communities aren’t cookie-cutter. It’s wonderful to be a part of a company that understands that, and connects with each neighborhood and each guest individually.
