My First Job: Cindy Solis
Name: Cindy Solis
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Cindy's Place
First job: My first job was working as a bank teller in Virginia. My first job in Victoria, however, was at the Gulf Bend Center where I took care of mentally ill and disabled individuals in group homes.
What it taught me: I learned empathy. Working with these people, you understand why they are the way they are and you learn just how beautiful they are, both inside and out. It was very rewarding.
