Natalie Knesek

Natalie Knesek

Name: Natalie Knesek

Age: 39

City of residence: Gonzales

Current title: Owner of Licorice and Lemon Drops Old Fashioned Candy Shop

First job: I was a county extension agent.

What it taught me: It taught me time management, including making time for myself. That job involved a lot of work with very at-risk youth, so I also learned to keep my eyes open to many things around me. I still, in passing, notice a lot of things I don't think other people see.
