My First Job: Gayle Dar
Name: Gayle Dar
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Lettuce Wrap It
First job: I worked at the McDonald's on Houston Highway when I was 15.
What it taught me: It taught me that if you work, you make money. That was big for me. The owners were all about customer service, too. So I learned all about keeping things clean, consistency and things like that. It was a lot to learn at 15, but those are things that will always help me.
