What do you like most about your job?
What I like most about my job is that I was finally able to fulfil my childhood dream of learning how lollies and chocolate are made. Chocolate and lollies make everyone – young and old – happy, and this makes me feel good about my job.
What advice would you give new staff?
The job can be overwhelming at first, with so many new skills to learn, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.
What three words would you use to describe yourself?
I am fair, trustworthy and observant.
What is your favourite family tradition?
As an immigrant family, it is important to celebrate holiday traditions from Mexico and America. My favourite traditions among these are Thanksgiving and Dia des los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
How do you recharge?
By having a really nice siesta.
What memory do you most treasure?
The birth of my two boys.
What would you tell your younger self?
Follow your dreams and never give up.
