Meet Joe Hooven, our Auto Technician at the service station. Joe is a long time resident of the Quakertown area and a graduate of Quakertown High School. He continued his education at Pennsylvania College of Technology. He is an ice hockey player at heart, but thank goodness, you wouldn’t know it by his teeth. He’s a big Flyer’s fan and also enjoys camping and hiking. This is a plus since he lives near Lake Nockamixon. He usually has a project going, whether its remodeling rooms in his house, building computer components, or working on his latest find, a vintage Triumph. He likes to eat healthy, but he also loves chicken nuggets and Wawa, which you may find if you peek in his lunchbox or on his workbench. He’s also part pastry chef, and makes a mean cinnamon bun cheesecake. Joe and Jarrod could have a competition to see who can eat the most donuts, and not gain an inch. If you see Joe at the shop, stop by and say hi!
Ryan takes the role of Service Advisor at the shop. He has grown up around and under the hood of cars, so talking about them is second nature for him. Ryan went to Souderton High School and continued his education at The University of Northwestern Ohio. He is a huge fan of older Mustangs that he can tinker with, and has a soft spot for owning very large trucks and Suburbans that can keep him busy fixing things at home. He also keeps busy with his wife and two children, a boy and a girl. Ryan is a fan of good food as well, and loves the Country Place, a local favorite haunt. He’s a fan of NASCAR and stock car racing, so of course that fits well with the guys at the shop. I’m not sure what else you can say about someone whose favorite color is black, but Ryan is a great guy and works in the office to keep the guys in the shop in line.
Cecilia is our office manager and we are so glad for all she does. She has lots of experience with numbers since she’s been crunching them for 40 years now. She is officially a retiree, but carves out a few hours a week to keep the numbers sharp at our shop and so that she doesn’t go stir crazy at home. She attended West Catholic Girls School in Philadelphia, but managed to settle in the quiet town of Harleysville. She and her husband have two grown sons, and now spend their time raising their two dogs. Cecilia is a football fan but if there’s no game to watch, you may find her playing Scrabble with her family.
