Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
Throughout most of high school, I worked at the Minnesota Zoo in the food service area. I enjoyed the days that I got to work outside at the ice cream carts but the days spent cleaning the dining room weren’t quite as enjoyable!

Sounds cliché but I would say the golden rule! Always treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
