Being a city that already has a better climate than 90% of the country is already one in the victory column for everyone. When it comes to career paths, though, some people have it better than others.

How she got the job: “I like to tell people it's the classic tale of 'girl meets bee.' I picked up a beekeeping how-to book by chance and was fascinated by the chapters that described how bees live and work. I just fell in love with bees. After I graduated from UCSC, I moved home to San Diego and was living with my dad. He happens to have a large backyard and agreed to let me start a hive there. I began doing bee removals immediately. I got my very first bee colony by posting an ad for free swarm removal on Craigslist. Word got out that I was keeping and rescuing bees and everything just snowballed from there, so I started my own beekeeping business.”
