    I’ve been at Nissan of Durango since June 1st 1999 but you could say I’ve been in the car business my whole life. When I was three my dad bought into a Datsun dealership in Salida CO and we actually lived in an apartment above the showroom.

    We moved to Durango when I was five and opened up Nissan of Durango. By the time I was 13 ,I was working in the shop after school and during the summers washing cars and doing all the things no one else wanted to do. Eventually I moved into sales when I was 19, and had a lot of fun in that position for seven years. I met a lot of people made a few friends and learned a lifetime of knowledge from the best teacher in the world!

    I’ve been in management for four years now and recently became Executive Manager of the dealership, where I oversee the day to day operations of all departments. It was really a great benefit starting from the bottom and working my way up. I wouldn’t change that for anything. A couple of things I love about this business is you never stop learning new things, facing new challenges and meeting new people.

    When not working, I enjoy camping in the La Platas ,boating at Lake Navajo, skiing at Durango Mountain Resort or as we locals will always know it, Purgatory! I’ve come to love Durango and plan on always living here.

    Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions, concerns or just casual conversation. I look forward to meeting you for the first time or seeing you again! Have a great day!!

    I am a Colorado native who attended both Fort Lewis College and Western State College. I obtained an accounting degree from Western State graduating Magna Cum Laude. My husband, Mike, is a Durango native and we have a son, who will be a junior at Fort Lewis, and a daughter who will be a junior at Durango High School.

    I have spent many years as a “sports mom” attending soccer, basketball, baseball and football games. I am an avid skier and a supporter of Mike in his biking endeavors.

    For the last four years, I have been coordinator for the Durango Community After Hours Prom event, helping to keep over 400 young adults safe on Prom night.

    I am proud to say that Nissan of Durango has been a sponsor of this event every year.

    My career with Nissan of Durango began in 2000, when Mike and I came in to buy a car. We left the dealership with a new vehicle and a new job for me. Not a bad deal on either side!

    I moved to my current position as Accounting Manager in 2001 and have earned the Nissan Owner First Award of Excellence from 2002 to 2009.

    I have one of the best office crews around and hope you will feel free to give any of us a call if you have any questions.

    My profession of 35 years began by having to constantly work on my muscle cars in the early 1970’s. After graduating high school in 1973 I got my first job as a mechanic changing oil at a local Ford dealership. I then moved to Steamboat Springs where I landed a job with T.I.C. (The Industrial Company). It was my job to maintain a fleet of 200 Ford pickup trucks. I met my wife in Steamboat and we both moved to New York to be with my mom who had cancer. During this time I worked at an independent shop learning how to repair everything from Jaguars to old willy Jeeps.

    After my mom passed, my wife and I, with two children now, moved back to Colorado, Durango this time. I found an opening at Nissan of Durango where I have worked since 1992, no longer a mechanic, but an automotive technician. I have reached the highest level of achievement becoming a Nissan Master Technician and an ASE Master Technician.

    Over the years I’ve taught automotive classes, testified in Federal Court as an expert witness, and work with Nissan engineers on many issues. Having to keep up with the ever changing advances in automotive technology, I have gone to many schools over the years and continue to do so.

    Hi! My name is Jay. Many of you know me, but for those who don’t let me tell you a little about myself. I was born in Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of New York City.

    After attending the prestigious Ivy League School, Jersey City Junior College, I embarked on a 7 year stint in the United States Marine Corps.

    I am a veteran of the Viet Nam War circa 1966-1968. I was honorably discharged and began selling Nissans in 1977. They were known as Datsuns back then. I worked in the Bay Area of the ” left coast” …commonly know as California.

    I ventured to Durango and joined Nissan of Durango roughly 14 years ago. I found a home here.

    It has been nice meeting you and hope to see you soon at Nissan of Durango. “Where Cars Cost Less”.
