Assistant General Manager


I was happy to join Pret in 2015. The company seemed to be expanding quickly in the city and I thought it would be a good experience while I pursued my business degree. Shortly after joining the company I saw a career path following my school major. Pret has taught me that hard work and dedication can take you far. To be successful at Pret, all you need is passion, and if you're passionate about what you do then the sky will be the limit.

General Manager


I joined Pret on February 15th 2012, the day after Valentine’s Day, on which Pret became my first job and first true love. I started off as a Team Member and worked my way from Barista, to Shop Leader, then Assistant General Manager, up to my current position as General Manager in one of NYC’s busiest shops. Here I’ve been able to gain the qualities that have made me who I am today, all while finishing my Bachelor’s degree in College. Having passion and building a strong community became a recurring theme as I’ve continued through the ranks. It’s what’s helped me grow at Pret and as a person!
