Director, Communications
Pattison Food Group

What are some of your career highlights?

There are so many to list over the past 23 years I’ve been with the company, but some of the greatest highlights include: being a part of the marketing team that launched the first Darrell’s Deals campaign back in 2014; leading the communications team to support our stores through the pandemic; and the incredible events our team has hosted, including a concert by Randy Bachman [a Canadian rock legend] to celebrate Save-On-Foods entrance into the Winnipeg market in 2016. 

What is your proudest moment?

My proudest moment in my career was when I was awarded the 2021 Anne Kidd Inspire Award at the Save-On-Foods leadership excellence celebration. This award is given annually to one woman in the company who demonstrates positive influence, communication, dedication and leadership.

What is your leadership philosophy?

Lead with calmness and kindness and be authentic.

What keeps you motivated at work?

I am so inspired by the commitment and dedication of my team, and it drives me to want to be a better leader.

What advice would you give people starting out in the communications side of the grocery industry?

Jump into every opportunity you can to learn new things and never underestimate the impact you can have. And always remember that the relationships you build along the way are critical to your success.

How do you spend your time outside of work?

Outside of work, I have two young girls who are active in all sorts of activities. It is so much fun watching them grow, taking on new challenges and learning new things.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Congratulations to all the 2023 Star Women in Grocery recipients. I am so proud and honoured to be recognized along with these amazing leaders.
