Mary Jean Anderson named "Cool Woman" by Girl Scouts San Diego

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 05, 2017) - Mary Jean Anderson, owner and president of Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air, was honored as one of Girl Scouts San Diego's Cool Women of 2017 during a recent luncheon ceremony at Paradise Point Resort. Anderson is a former Girl Scout and has a daughter, Kelly Jo, who also was a Girl Scout.

"Being a Girl Scout was the highlight of my youth. I truly believe that where I am today in life has a direct correlation to my scouting days," reflects Anderson. "I learned self-confidence as well as goal setting and organizational skills. I also loved earning as many badges as I could because each one always taught me something new!"

Upon receiving the Cool Woman award from Girl Scout Reagan Cloutier, Anderson commented, "It's been an amazing adventure getting to know some of the Girl Scouts of today. And I want all of you to know, that from what I've seen, our future is in really good hands!"
