    Growing up I would spend time with my Great Grandfather who owned his own automotive repair shop proudly named “Ernie’s Auto Service” located between Van Wert and Paulding in a little town named Broughton. Whether I was sweeping the shop, running a lemonade stand for his customers, or just watching him work all day, those are some of my fondest memories.

    I’ve been working with the Statewide Crew since the beginning of 2020, and a year later proudly bought my first home here in Van Wert!  I work closely amongst all departments so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or opportunities!

    I was born and raised here in Van Wert, and graduated from VWHS in 2011. From there I attended UNOH, majoring in Sports Marketing & Management. After college I began my career in auto parts, and am now in my 9th year in the industry, first with AutoZone and now here at Statewide. When I’m not here serving our valued customers, I’m usually at a race track, concert, hockey game, or driving/camping somewhere far from paved roads.
