How I Made It: She started flipping burgers, now she's the boss at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Weber was a 16-year-old high school student when she started working a summer job at Magic Mountain, flipping burgers at one of the park’s fast-food joints. It was her fallback job after failing to land a retail gig in the San Fernando Valley. She stayed at the park while attending college at Cal State Northridge. By that time, she had been promoted to managing half of the park’s food operations. Weber’s career goal was to go into marketing. She left the park for brief stints to work in advertising and marketing, but Magic Mountain kept calling her back. “I never thought it would be a lifelong career, and here I am close to 30 years later,” she said. “It’s something that just gets in your blood.” -- Los Angeles Times
