Today's guest blog is written by Lauren Brandom, a Baylor University student who is interning in the Mr. Rooter® Plumbing Public Relations Department. When her father was a Baylor student in the 1970s, he worked for the late founder of our parent company The Dwyer Group, Inc. Don Dwyer had a local BBQ restaurant at the time.
"After watching the Undercover Boss episode featuring The Dwyer Group and Mr. Rooter Plumbing with my girlfriends, we felt so inspired by Dina. It is nice and reassuring seeing such a strong, down-to-earth woman leading a company.
Being a senior in my last semester of college, it is hard to believe that one day I could become a CEO of a company in a male-dominate field. Dina has inspired and encouraged my friends and me to do whatever our hearts desire. She has shown us that we have no limits just because we are women.
When Dina spoke about her experience on Undercover Boss to my friend Jessie's class at Baylor, Jessie was so taken aback by her. Jessie even followed her out because she wanted advice on how to achieve her career goal. Dina advised Jessie to take the CEO of the company she wants to work for out to lunch, and that is what Jessie plans on doing.
It's an honor to be following in my dad's footsteps as well as interning with Mr. Rooter."
Lauren, we are glad you are interning for us, and we thank you for all your hard work and dedication to Mr. Rooter Plumbing. We wish you all the best when you graduate.
Here's wishing you a world class day
