Discern a Fuel Pump from a Brake Pad With Susan Myers

The Washington Post Magazine has a fantastic profile on Joyce Motors President Susan Myers. Myers is a former Girl Scout Leader of 10 years, who is even responsible for starting a camp! In her words about inheriting the company, Myers says:
"My grandfather started Joyce Motors 70 years ago. My dad spent his whole life here. Mothers and wives tend to fade into the background sometimes, or at least
I did. But it was time to pull on the cowgirl boots and stand up for myself."
So she did - and she runs the company now! Are there women in mechanics in your community?
