What began for me as a part-time job in high school years ago has grown into a rewarding career of managing our pharmacy operations in the Miami division.
One thing I admire most about the company is how our founder, Mr. George, paved the way for so many others to share in the success of Publix. He knew that his success and the success of Publix Super Markets depended on our people. By establishing employee ownership, he ensured that Publix associates would take better care of the company. We own it!
I am proud to work for a company that gives back so much to the community. We have given away more than 50 million prescriptions to patients who otherwise may have gone without their medication. Free annual health screenings for associates and reduced family pricing encourages our Publix family to take a proactive role in their health. Mr. George believed in taking care of his associates and created a sense of community at work and beyond.
If I were to go back in time, I wouldn't change a thing. Publix has invested in me and so many others to build strong leaders and smart operators.
I love working with people who share the same goals so that we can continue to grow our business while maintaining the core values that led to our success. When people ask me where I work, it is with great pride that I reply, "Publix!"
