I grew up working on the family cars in the driveway with my dad, I would hold the flash light and he did the work when I was little. As I got older I did the work and he held the flashlight. That turned into my first job at a tire store and a summer internship at a Chevrolet dealership.  My parents moved to Delaware and I stayed in Pennsylvania and graduated high school working odd jobs at gas stations and body shops. The only thing I have ever been successful at have involved cars in one form or another. I have moved several times between Pennsylvania and Delaware always working on cars. I have been a technician, Oldsmobile and Chevrolet Master tech, Service writer, body shop estimator and assistant manager, used parts sales and have now landed in Warranty administration position here at IG Burton BMW. I've been involved with cars for 35 plus years. I have raised 4 children, 1 with special needs, have 4 grandchildren and enjoy riding my motorcycle in my free time.
