Career Cafe #9: Lawyer and #10: Senior Operations Manager

We had two WONDERFUL guests this week for Career Cafe at WD!

First, we had Rich Ruohonen, a well known and highly accomplished lawyer from TSR injury law (He's the "R"!).  He really did a great job describing to the kids all the different types of lawyers and specifically what his firm does with injury law.  He gave great examples of his cases and really hit home the point that we all need to be careful as we are driving, because a lot of mistakes can be made and lives can be taken--and that's where he comes in.  I think speaking this point to the 'texting age' was really important!

He even showed the kids his commercial which they all got a kick out of!

Thanks Rich!

Our second guest of the week was Dan Grimm--a volunteer parent!  Dan is a senior operations manager for Koch logistics.  I had no idea all that his title encompassed---but he works with a TON of very well known companies and products we use every single day!  It was very interesting for both the kids and ME to hear what Mr. Grimm had to share about his job and the skills he uses daily!   I think he won them all over in the end by giving out his company teddy bears---what kid doesn't want something to cuddle!? :)

Thanks Dan!
