My First Job: Natalie Knesek
Name: Natalie Knesek
City of residence: Gonzales
Current title: Owner of Licorice and Lemon Drops Old Fashioned Candy Shop
First job: I was a county extension agent.
What it taught me: It taught me time management, including making time for myself. That job involved a lot of work with very at-risk youth, so I also learned to keep my eyes open to many things around me. I still, in passing, notice a lot of things I don't think other people see.
