My First Job: Erika Bochat

• Name: Erika Bochat

• Age: 47

• City of residence: Goliad County

• Current title: County extension family and consumer science agent

• First job: Gift wrapper at Porter's Jewelry in Edinburg

What it taught me: I learned responsibility and punctuality. If I couldn't be there, I knew to call in to let them know. Otherwise, I would always be on time. I also learned how to wrap gifts very well and still know how.
