Name: Bridgette Bise
Age: 29 and holding
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Executive director of the Victoria Convention and Visitors Bureau
First job: I was the Easter bunny at the Washington Park Mall in Bartlesville, Okla. when I was 15 and 16. That was how I paid for my prom dresses.
What it taught me: I learned not to go out and get sunburned before going in to work. The inside of the costume was made of burlap and, my second year on the job, I got a horrible sunburn. It made for a pretty miserable day at work.
