THIS / OR / THAT
Spontaneous / Planned
I like to have a plan with room to be agile and move quickly toward a goal.
Optimist / Pessimist
I’m always an optimist. No matter the challenge, there is always a solution and a lesson to be learned.
Introvert / Extrovert
Price / Value
Providing value to your customers is an absolute must. Value is created—not just by price—but by how you treat a customer and make
them feel throughout their shopping experience.
Research / Wing it
Ranch / Ketchup
Talk / Listen
I typically listen more than I talk. When I do speak, it’s after I’ve had the chance to hear and consider others’ opinions on the topic. I genuinely enjoy listening to others.
Coffee / Drinks
Short term / Long term
Long-term strategies are the goal you are working toward. You must know where you are going in order to be able to get there—while still having agility to adjust along the way.
Home / Office
I prefer working in the office. I like being around our team and having the ability to talk face to face.
Phone call / Email
Fuel Saver / Hy-Vee Plus
Cake / Pie
My favorite dessert is an authentic key lime pie, so pie it is.
