I grew up in the automotive field as my dad was a GM Tech and owned his on automotive bussiness for several years.
His shop was my daycare and as I got older I became his helper. Then after high school I Trained under Gateway Technical college for two years. I have worked in Ford, GM and Chrysler Dealerships before becoming an Automotive Teacher in 2003. I taught Automotive Service at North Central Career Center in Leslie AR and from 2013 to 2016 I also taught Collision Repair there. In 2016 I left teaching for about a year and worked for Mark Martin Chrysler as a Service Writer I realized that I was happier being a techer so I returned to the classroom in 2017 at Huntsville High School.
