My First Job: Terri Ferrier
Name: Terri Ferrier
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Doggy Detailers Grooming Salon
First job: I was a stay-at-home mom for years, so this was my first true job.
What it taught me: I've learned it's fun being your own boss and setting your own hours and appointments. You have a lot more freedom than someone in a store. It also allows you to spend more time with your family than you could with most other jobs.
