I have worked at Bellingham Cash&Carry for 11 years the last three as Store Manager. I have over 35 years in the retail Grocery Business starting as a courtesy clerk in 1974 for Ferndale Thriftway.
I started with Cash&Carry in 2001 in Everett, WA on the night freight crew, then gradually made my way through all of the departments. In 2010, I was hired as an Assistant Manager at our Everett location, then was transferred to Bellingham, WA the same year. I graduated La Salle d’Ecole with an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts. I have over 20 years experience in the food industry (catering, restaurant owner, management, and retail grocery). I pride myself on knowing the products that Cash&Carry has to offer from taste to quality. I enjoy having the opportunity to work with our customers to create new menu items and memorable special events.
I have over 7 years of service with Cash&Carry, the last five as an assistant manager. Previously, I worked as a sales representative and retail manager for a beer wholesaler in Pennsylvania. I enjoy the diversity of customers I serve from the greater Seattle area.
I started with Cash&Carry in fall of 2007. I was promoted to Assistant Manager in spring of 2012. Prior to working at Cash&Carry I worked in the grocery business for 8 years.
I was hired in the spring of 2002 as an sales associate. I was promoted to perishable specialist in 2012. In my time with Cash&Carry I have run all the departments in the store. Before coming to Cash&Carry I have obtained a fine arts Degree from the University of British Columbia and a Washington State Teaching certification in Visual Arts from Western Washington University. I have coached football as well as track & field for 10 years at High School and college. My goal as a Perishable Specialist is to always meet the needs and expectations of our customers.
I have worked for Cash&Carry for 19 years, 7 years as a store manager and the past 12 years as a District Manager. I currently cover our stores in Western Washington from Kent to Bellingham and the stores in Spokane. I strive to ensure that we are prepared to meet our customers expectations with each visit and that we are consistently working to create a partnership with customers to achieve mutual success.
