    614-552-5496

    I grew up in Bexley, Ohio until middle school and moved to Pickerington, Ohio where I graduated from Pickerington North High School.  My sales background started with motorcycles where I learned my passion for  riding in my spare time.  I took a chance leaving the industry I loved and transferred to car sales with Byers in 2014, which ended up being the best decision.  Working with the Audi sales team and the Byers family has been amazing and taught me so much.  We are our own family and have so much fun with our clients during each delivery.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my husband and playing with our two adopted kids (2 rescued shelter dogs 😊)

    I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University. I started in the auto industry with Byers in the 1980's, owned a few business and came back to Byers Imports in 2013 in our Subaru department and currently enjoy selling each Audi model. It was an easy decision to return to the Byers family. Outside of work, I have been married to my better half, Holly, since 1983. We enjoy eating local and love to travel. We have two wonderful children, Dani and Dustin and the best grandchildren Luca and Ever.  Let me know if I can answer any questions.
