What is your job title? And what do you love most about your job?
I am the Kitchen Lead at the GetGo Cafe + Market in Elyria, OH.
I like the hours I work and the people I work with. I enjoy training new Team Members and pretty much everything about what I do here.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
I'm most proud of being promoted to the Kitchen Lead position after only being with the Company for about 6 months.
What does National Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month mean to you?
This is my first year celebrating National Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month, but it is providing the opportunity to learn more about myself and where I come from.
Out of the newly refreshed Core Values (Respect All, Think Team, See It Own It, Work Smart, Live Well and Do Right), which Core Value resonates with you the most? Why?
I can honestly say all of our Core Values resonate with me. I really like and value my job, so I try to be the best leader I can. I try new things to keep the team working together. I Step Up when needed and delegate when possible.
What are some interesting hobbies or talents that most people may not know about you?
I recently started learning how to crochet, and I can do about 3 different patterns.

- Celebrating and educating about Hispanic and Latinx culture
- Providing mentorship and professional development opportunities
- Helping expand product offerings in store that are relevant to this community
