My First Job: Lanell Mantey
Name: Lanell Mantey
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Executive director of Victoria Business and Education Coalition
First job: I was on the teen board at Dillard's.
What it taught me: It taught me about scheduling because I didn't have a clue how it all worked. I also learned sales skills and how to feel comfortable around strangers. Fashion was another thing. It was a fun job.
