Kim Auernheimer, AAM
Rob's partner in life and in business, Kim has tons of experience in business management. Since 1997, Kim worked in real estate and property management but has was behind the scenes when Rob decided to open Cool Springs Automotive. However, the business grew into something that requires more man power (or woman power)! So, she stepped out from the background and joined her husband in this venture. Kim continuously seeks out training for her and her entire team and put the teachings to use. Her belief in industry education has been a large influence on how much success and growth they have had over last few years. In fact, she recently received her Accredited Automotive Manager certification. She has a passion to improve the reputation of the Automotive Repair industry working alongside other shop owners and industry leaders to improve the overall experience of the customer from the moment they make that first call to the shop until they drive their car off the lot instilling transparency and developing trust during the entire process. Kim oversees the customer service and business side of the company!
Tanner Rocks! It is just that simple. He graduated from Texas State Technical with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and received a certificate in Computer Numerical Control in 2005. He began working as automotive technician in 2009 at a Texas Toyota Dealership. He joined our team in early 2011 and we could not be happier. We haven't found anything yet that this guy can't fix. Did we mention he's an ASE Certified Master Tech? And....We couldn't be more proud that Tanner received the Ratchet & Wrench Shop Worker of the Year award in 2016! He's an All-Star in so many ways! Tanner and his wife Jena are proud parents of four beautiful children.
Lori, our Service Writer Extraordinaire! With her outgoing personality and passion for taking care of people, Lori's gift is making everyone feel comfortable. She joined our the CS Automotive team in October of 2013 and we will not let her ever leave us! Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Lori and her family enjoy living in the countryside. She is an avid hunter and chicken farmer! Yes, she has a hen house of chickens that she can share a tale or three about! Lori and her husband Joe are parents to two beautiful daughters, Baleigh and Carlie. We're so thankful to have her on board.
Jan is the glue for all things customer related. Whether you need a ride somewhere, a loaner car set up, need to schedule your next appointment, or just need assistance changing the channel on the waiting room TV, she's your go-to to make sure you're taken care of. It is just that simple. AND....she can cook! Jan and her husband Kevin are extremely proud of her two married, adult children and their families. "YaYa" would love to show you pictures of you her three absolutely precious grand-daughters and a grand baby boy!! We are so pleased to have our own "YaYa" in the CS Automotive family!
Angel is just that! Our Angel! He is a retired shop owner from New York City. Angel is a longtime CS Automotive family member, in fact he is the first employee we ever hired. He helps out in so many ways we have no job description for him, except AMAZING! Always here to cheer us up and remind us that we are to keep our focus and not forget our mission. Angel and his beautiful wife Aldith have three adult children.
Our kid...well, not biology speaking but he is the kid of the group! He keeps us young and smiling! Levi began working on cars and motorcycles while he was just a kid helping his father. Now, a married man, he enjoys spending time with his wife Lilia. Perhaps his youth makes it easier for him to learn from the other "more experienced" technicians because Levi is one of the quickest learners we have ever met! He truly keeps us smiling while he bounces around the shop with a smile from ear to ear!
Another Michigan native joined our CS Automotive family in 2016 and we couldn't be happier! Cory and his wife enjoy working on their newly purchased home and training their German Shepherd puppy. Cory's dry sense of humor and quick wit keeps us guessing. One thing to note about Cory....if you want to make good with him just give him Cookies! Our little cookie monster is a blessing to us each day!
