Therefore, permit me to say, that my love for people is the number one reason why I love working with this company. I am one of the fortunate mangers who have had the privilege of working at four different locations within the company. The journey of working with an amazing group of people has been nothing more but gratifying, fulfilling, successful, memorable and most of all it has made me into a strong and nurturing manager.
Many associates, managers, heads of department, operations managers managing director and valuable customers have touched my life in so many ways, I have cried, laugh, played, and danced, performed with them but most of all I continue to feel so much love that makes it so easy to give love back.
I often forget the challenges, and not so good moments I have encountered through this journey because the positives out way the negatives by far and so it makes my job of managing and training people a calling, more than a job. I will continue to give out my best to my team collogues and customers, I will continue to love this great team, I am honored to be one of the most valuable players.
