Dedicated Instructor with over 10 years of Dealership Experience working on all makes and models. Ford Senior Master, Certified Power and Performance Tuner and proud owner and operator of A & J Automotive Repair and Fleet Services.
After attending UTI and graduating from the Automotive, Diesel and HVAC programs in 1999. I immediately became employed and worked with multiple dealerships during my Automotive Technician Career. Dealerships included: Lexus Of Sacramento, Future Ford Fleet Center, Elk Grove Ford, Motorsports Dynamics, Apex Motorsports and Mel Rapton Honda.
In 2006 I decided that spreading my knowledge in the automotive industry was what I wanted to do and became an Instructor at the Sacramento Campus of UTI. My career here lasted from 2006 to 2009. I instructed Service Writing, Brakes, Electrical and became one of Sacramento's First Ford FACT Instructors. It was in 2009 that I decided to open my own Automotive Repair Business called A & J Automotive Repair and Fleet Services located in Sacramento as well.
As the proud owner and operator of A & J Automotive we have been open since 2009 and still continue to operate as an Automotive Repair and Fleet Maintenance company in Rancho Cordova. I can proudly say that we have been open for approx. 15 years and have never fell under a 5 Star review status on Google, Yelp, Groupon, Facebook and more. We strive on Customer service and performing repairs the right way the first time.
Although I love my business... I also missed spreading knowledge about Automotive Technology to upcoming and rising stars. Our future in this industry is important to me and I definitely want to help our growing art strive. This is why I have decided to step away from my business as an Owner/Operator and assume only a Management roll in my business to allow myself time to teach. I am glad to be back at UTI and look forward to the future to come.
