• Name: Jeb Lacey
• Age: 31

• First job: I was a tour guide with Lake Shasta Caverns in California.
What it taught me: I learned how to tell jokes for tips, and also counted a lot of stairs during tours. It helped me keep my mind occupied. The job helped me save up for my first car and afford car insurance during the school year. I had a lot of fun and met a lot of interesting people from all over the world.
