• Name: Mary Helen Barrick

• Age: 54

• County of residence: Lavaca County

• Current title: Executive director of Main Street Program

• First job: I worked at Swensen's ice cream shop in Austin while I was in high school.

What it taught me: It's all about the customer - the good, the bad and the indifferent. You won't please every customer all the time, but I learned that the customer is always right.
