Wednesday marked my first year at H-E-B!
It was a year full of new experiences, new friends, and new challenges (*gestures vaguely at 2020*).
I’m lucky. I have incredible teammates who are kind, caring and supportive, and we work for an organization that consistently puts its people and its community first.
I’m proud of the work we do every day, but especially so over the last few months. We work hard to live our values in big ways and in small ways, when it is easy to do so and when it is difficult to do so. What I’ve seen out of our Partners, my teammates, our leadership and in turn the response from our community has been nothing short of incredible.
I’d never have predicted the challenges we are facing right now as a nation and in our individual communities, but when I walked through the doors on my first day at H-E-B a year ago and received my name badge with the words “Because People Matter” prominently displayed, I knew we’d always be ready to do the work of living up to that promise.
Though these last few months have been tough, I firmly believe that we land right where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there, and with the people we are supposed to be with.
And I’m looking forward to all the great things still to come!
