Careers class was her favorite high school class because … she explored various careers and was given the opportunity to choose an occupation to write about.
Dallas’ first job – was a Counter Worker at a fast food restaurant. She also worked as a Bagger at a grocery store.
The worst job? Fast Food Worker, partly because she didn’t feel she was good at it.
Dallas was recently elected for the Society of Government Travel Professionals Board of Directors of a Travel Management Company; definitely a career highlight.
