Other than being born in the Bay area, I’ve lived in Calaveras County my whole life. At an early age I was introduced to the automotive world. Since then I’ve always enjoyed anything mechanical, especially all types of vehicles. I graduated Universal Technical Institute in 1998. Shortly thereafter I was hired by the Freightliner Company and became a factory trained technician where I spent 4 years working on the “big rigs.” Since then I’ve worked at independent automotive repair shops in Calaveras and Amador counties. I have been a Service Advisor with Sterling Auto repair since 2013. I really enjoy working here and I consider everyone here a part of my family. I treat our customers like I treat my Grandmother. The most important thing to me is that they get the correct service each time they come in. Outside of work, my real passion is my daughter Hannah. She is the love of my life! We enjoy spending time together doing a variety of activities like fishing, camping and even panning for gold. I look forward to the day that I can take my dream vacation with her in Alaska. We love the outdoors!
Born and raised in Tracy, CA, I have lived in the beautiful Amador County for a little over two years now alongside my husband and 4 year old son. In our free time we enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, camping, dirt bikes, and horseback riding. A dream vacation of mine is taking a Caribbean Cruise. There is nothing greater than sunshine alongside the ocean.
I joined the Sterling family 3 months ago which has been my introduction into the automotive industry. It is such a pleasure to work with an honest and trustworthy group of individuals. With 11 years of customer service experience, 7 years in management and a background in Psychology, I look forward to working with you through all of your vehicle needs.
I’m originally from Concord, CA and have always been interested in cars since my first slot car racing set when I was eight years old. After High school I relocated to Louisiana and worked in the logging industry, cutting and skidding logs. Shortly after that I joined the Army and was stationed in Fort Hood Texas. In 1977 I moved back to California and began my career in the automotive business. During the last several decades, I’ve worked for several independent shops between here and Stockton. During this time I also raced stock cars, both on dirt and asphalt. My wife Cindy and I have been happily married since 1994, and between us we have 7 children and 15 grandchildren!
I recently joined Sterling Auto Repair after 6 years at Riebes-Napa Auto Parts. My stepson Shawn also works here as their service advisor. I look forward to finishing my automotive career here with the Sterling family. When that time comes, Cindy and I look forward to a 2 week Alaskan fishing trip. I look forward to seeing you soon here at Sterling Auto Repair!
I moved from Southern California to Amador County in 1982 with my wife Joyce and our three children. I now have forty years experience as an automotive technician ranging from medium/heavy duty trucks to Cadillacs, Land Rovers and nearly everything in between. Of all the places I have worked, Sterling Auto Repair is truly top notch and very friendly to employees and customers. One hundred and ten years ago, blacksmiths had to evolve into mechanics. Now, using my mechanical skills in my hobby of blacksmithing, I make custom knives and swords along with iron roses and hand-forged decorative and functional items. I now share my skills by voluntarily teaching blacksmithing at Folsom Museum every month. Pride in work and attention to details are my daily goals here at Sterling Auto Repair. Let us here at Sterling Auto Repair take care of you and all of your automotive needs.
I’ve lived in Amador County for 31 years. My beautiful wife Chelsea and I have 3 awesome girls that I enjoy spending time with. When I was 13 my dad and I built my first car, an ’89 Camaro. That’s when I realized I had a passion for working on cars. I have been “wrenching” now for well over 14 years! I also have a passion for anything and everything fishing! I enjoy taking my boat out to one of our local lakes or the Sacramento River and fish for Sturgeon, Makinaw, Salmon and Striper. Someday I’d like to pursue being a fishing instructor for a career. If I could take a dream vacation, it would be going to Disneyland and Universal Studios with my family.
I’ve been with Sterling now for about a year. I’m an ASE Certified Technician and am proficient in diagnosing and repairing Diesel, Electrical, Heavy Duty, and Drivability issues for both foreign and domestic vehicles. I really enjoy what I do for a living and enjoy working with the other team members here. We have a great time here at the shop as a team which makes it enjoyable coming to work every day. I’ll take care of your vehicle as if it belonged to my Mom. Please consider us for your next service.
