We are shining the spotlight one of our Salesman at our McGrath Volkswagen/Hyundai of Dubuque location!
Born: I was born in Chicago, Illinois and currently live in Dubuque.
Family/Pets: I have two furbabies named Blaine and Letty as well as my wife Natalie.
How did you meet your wife? I met my wife while in college during a college visit even before we started school.
Funny story: One of my favorite memories was one night my residents and I bought burger meat from our local gas station and made peanut butter and chocolate burgers like in Scooby-Doo.
First job: My first job was as a bus boy at a banquet hall. The free food made it worth it and we always got to be a part of the party!
Career: I started selling cars in Cedar Falls at a VW dealership and moved to Ames to sell cars there. I eventually moved to Dubuque and found our VW dealership. I already loved the brand, but I grew to know and love our team even more. I was promoted to F&I and now, Floor Manager. My passion continues to be working with our sale team and our customers. I’m really proud to have come to where I am today.
Someone you admire: My mother is my greatest role model. She took the role of mom and dad and I couldn’t have asked for a better inspiration than her.
Hobbies: Outside of work, my wife and I have our hands full with two dogs. We love going to local breweries and watching hockey games!
Favorite song of the year: Post Malone, Sunflower
Something you want to do before you die: I want to go back down to Latin America.
Personal motto: Always lead by example and be the change you want to see.
What was your first vehicle: 96 Honda Accord. Being one of the only friends with a car, we would take my car and get some Chicago style hot dogs and hang out at my friends shop after school.
Something that would surprise others: I’m a pretty good cook or at least my wife says so.
Definition of happiness: Having the feeling after a long day that there’s nothing you would’ve done differently.
What do you hope to achieve at McGrath: I hope to grow as much as possible within the company. I want to continue to grow my own set of skills and help those around me as well. I want to continue to create a great environment for our team and our customers.
