Jimmy John's is my family

02/10/2016

"I have a lot of feelings for people that have gone through social service and domestic violence, any kind of impact that was negative on their life. I personally would like to go to a women’s rescue shelter and places like that and read poetry, and do different workshops. A lot of how I came up through my childhood struggles was with poetry. I think it’s interesting because there’s a sense of family and community here that I have not really experienced throughout a lot of my life. Jimmy John’s is my family. That’s why I enjoy it.”

Believe

"I taught myself how to play poker and now I play all the time. Poker teaches you to have patience and to trust and believe in yourself. Even if I don't have a good hand, I can win a huge pot by making my opponent fold their hand. What does that take? It takes patience, it takes trusting myself. Trusting myself is something I also do with my job at Jimmy John's. I started as a driver 9 months ago. After a month I got promoted. Patience and trusting myself has worked for me."

"I think this year our store went down as the #11 rated store in the nation. I run that store, I mean, I think that's pretty cool. Twenty-three years old...yeah...I'd take that as an accomplishment. Drew Brees is my owner. He throws a pretty good football, I run a damn good sub shop. I'd say Drew and I make for great partners. Thanks JJ, Thanks Drew!"

Living Outside Your Comfort Zone

"I work at Jimmy John's and I'm also a yoga instructor. I love teaching yoga, but I've always hated public speaking. I realized, 'Oh my God, I basically signed up to do that all the time, like why?' It's cool though, because I like doing things I didn't think I could do or I didn't want to do but working at Jimmy John's has forced me to speak when I normally wouldn't and this had made me a better person."

"It makes me so proud watching my girls blossom into beautiful women. We've been through some rough times, we've struggled. They have come through, they have conquered the rough times. But it's like anything in life, there are always going to be struggles. There are struggles in this store everyday. Some are big and some are little and just the same thing when you have kids, when you're in a relationship, in any job...there are struggles. You just gotta have the fortitude to beat them."

"I finished up college and I majored in Criminal Justice. A lot of people will ask me, 'You have a college degree, why are you here at Jimmy John's?' I'm here because I like this job. And now I have an MBA in business. They teach us to succeed here. I love this job. Which is obvious, I've been here since 2010.

This is my family."
