“It was such a pleasure working at Mariano’s with Sammie. She was an asset to this company for several reasons, but what stood out the most to me was her relentless efforts to improve the experience of our employees. She was warm, kind, and an open door to all of our employees. She always left a lasting impact on everyone she interacted with. She will be missed by many.” – Casey Bryan; ASM Mariano’s
