Way back in 1999, I opened Oceanside Auto with my husband David. We have always valued being able to serve our customers and staff in ways that let them know they are appreciated and valued.
My day to day responsibilities include accounting, business development & oversight, homeschooling our 3 boys and making time for sending a meal when someone is sick or making cupcakes for a birthday. With so much going on, clear internal communication is an integral part of my role at Oceanside Auto. Between growing our business, raising our family, and developing our community involvement, I stay pretty busy. Not only am I the Co-Chief of SCHEF - the local homeschooling organization - I am an avid Crossfitter.
I have been with Oceanside Auto since we first opened our doors in June of 1999. I have been blessed throughout the years to have met and been able to help so many great people and customers.
Mechanically, I am ASE Certified in Brakes and Steering and Suspension. I have also trained on Oxygen Sensors, Electrical System Management, Air Conditioning, Engine Performance, and Air Fuel Management. The most important part of my job is overseeing everyday events and making sure our service is at 100%.
In the winter, you can find me snowmobiling. I love to ride, especially with my boys. I also enjoy camping in the summer.

It has been over 10 years since I started here at Oceanside Auto and no two days are the same. What does remain the same are the high standards at which this shop operates.

My expertise in the field comes from my ASE Certification in Engine Repair, Suspension and Steering, and Brakes. I also have received training from Chrysler on Engine Performance and am a Certified Air Conditioning System Technician through IMACA. Performing the work safely and efficiently, diagnosing properly the first time, and limiting customer comebacks are the goals I work towards every day.
