Learn more about Ines
“Since starting at UBC Food Services in February 1998, Ines has worked at Subway, Bread Garden and, most recently, Tim Hortons.

“A hard working team member, she enjoyed the busy times at Tim Hortons, where she typically worked the sandwich station, making fresh, hot food. No matter which Tims location she is working at, she always digs in and gets the job done.

“A valued colleague, Ines was always smiling and joking with her fellow team members and was equally friendly with her customers.

”Outside of work, she loves to dance and travel and spend time with her friends and family. We wish her a wonderful retirement spent doing all the things she loves.”

— Jody Ropas, Retail Operations Manager, Food Services
