I started at 7-Eleven as a team member at the Pakenham store in December 2016 where I mainly worked night shift. After nine months I applied for an assistant manager position in the district in October 2017. I ran the Pakenham store as an assistant manager for six months and was promoted to a corporate store manager when the Cranbourne Amstel store opened. After managing Cranbourne Amstel I recently have moved back to manage both the Pakenham and new Narre Warren store.
