Rene Cardona
Dock Manager,
Ocean Mist Farms
It has been more than 40 years since I began my career at Ocean Mist Farms. First, I delivered product and learned to drive a forklift. Thanks to due diligence and hard work, I am now the dock manager. To show my appreciation, I am sure to return the favor by mentoring other forklift operators and showing them the ropes at Ocean Mist Farms.
