Name: Stephen Thames

Age: 46

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Citizens Medical Center administrator

First job: I worked at the Roaring 50s ice cream parlor in Universal City when I was in 10th grade. I did a little of everything. I scooped ice cream, made sandwiches - you name it.

What it taught me: That job taught me responsibility. Showing up on time, being independent and being well-dressed were all life lessons that were instilled in me early on. It helped me get where I am today.
