Born in Ottawa, I moved to Elmira where I have resided since the age of five. I started working on cars at the age of fourteen, majored in automotive apprenticing right out of high school, receiving my Interprovincial Class A Automotive Technician  license. I completed a two year program in Automotive Business Management through Georgian Collage. I expanded my area of expertise in positions of Shop Foremen, Service Manager, gaining further experience in the parts and collision departments as a Fixed Operations Manager. In July 2008 I moved to the position of General Manager and in 2016 became the Dealer Principal  at Wellington Motors after completing a seven week program with the North American Dealer Academy in Washington. With over 33 years' experience  in the automotive business, over 20 here with Wellington, my approach has always been focused on you the customer. My goal is  to provide an automotive purchasing & service experience above and beyond your expectations.

519 822 8950

I was born in Hamilton and lived there for 12 years before my family relocated to Guelph where my father's business was based. I attended John McRae, College Avenue and Centennial C.V.I. I Played hockey and football growing up and also developed a huge passion for cars.  After finishing school,I  worked at Hammond Mfg. for a couple of years before I decided to try my hand at the car business. I started in sales in 1981 and came to Wellington Motors in 1986 where I sold for a couple more years before entering in a management position.

I still love cars, football ,  love to cook and travel and always have time for our 2 dogs, an Aussie and a Border Collie. I'm engaged to a great girl and have one son who's going into year two at The University of Guelph.

Born and raised in the charming little town of Elmira, Ontario. I am a proud mother of a son and daughter and married my high school sweetheart. I chose Wellington Motors for my automotive needs for over a decade before I began my employment here the consistent experience of the friendly staff that new me by name, great service provided a tremendous value. Wellington Motors had been a family run business for over 75 years with some staff still here after 40 years I thought they MUST be doing something right and I would be proud to be a part of the Wellington Motors Family.
