Morgan is the morale booster at the office and sometimes even joins our technicians “on the road” for their service calls. Her warm smile, fun personality, and positive energy has won her the title “Morale Marshall” of Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, Inc.. Morgan is definitely a “people-dog” and especially loves being rubbed behind her left ear.

Oakum is the Chief Operating Officer at Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, Inc.. She keeps everyone on task by checking up on them at their desks and when the technicians return from service calls. She understands proper work ethic and knows the power of using treats as an incentive.

Buster is the newest member of the group and is our new Director of Human Resources. As Director of HR, Buster ensures that everyone is in good spirits and enjoying their job.

The MOB loves rowdy games of tug-of-war and catch. Not to mention rough housing a bit around the office.
