Thuy is always willing to help customers as she is setting up the deli counter in the morning and making the food look delicious. She hopes to become a deli cook someday.

In her spare time, Thuy enjoys spending time with her husband and one-year old son, as well as cooking traditional Vietnamese, Chinese and American foods for her family. She says she makes the best Italian meatballs and spaghetti!
