At BDR Automotive, we give attention and respect to all women who visit our garages, whether they come in for maintenance, repair, or consultation for a vehicle problem. We especially value the talent and skills of the women who work for BDR Automotive, in the front office, in the garage, or behind the scenes in the back office.

Women in the Auto Industry… Meet The Leading Ladies of BDR Automotive

I love all the makes and models that we see in our service area and the range of repairs we do here – from general maintenance to the big jobs, like rebuilding frames and internal engine repairs! The BDR team is great. They accepted me into the BDR family as one of their own from the first day!

Chrissy says, “As an owner, I love being involved in the company. I especially enjoy the accounting part of operations, keeping things organized so the shop can flow efficiently.  I can successfully be the General Manager and still have time to run a household with three active children. As the kids have grown, I have taken on more responsibility, adding marketing and advertising to my role.”

Chrissy added, “Brian and I are thankful that we have been able to create an environment within the shop that is casual – laid back – but also structured. We want our employees to love coming to work every day. We strive to keep a comfortable work-home balance for everyone. We are encouraging and provide support to our staff with out micromanaging them. Doing this allows us to stay flexible. It truly is teamwork for all of us working together. We look forward to what the future will bring for women in the auto industry. We hope to expand the business by building our clientele and adding more employees.”
