We sat down with InC Auto Repair Center shop co-owner Sheryl Brown to learn more about how she got into the business of automotive and truck repairs. We were curious about what inspired her to get into this industry and what she loves about it. Here’s Part 1.
Q: It’s a bit unusual to have a woman in the lead at an auto repair shop. Did you grow up around family or friends who worked on cars/trucks/jeeps, or did this interest develop through other life experiences? In short: what inspired you to work in this industry?
After 25 years in the advertising and marketing industry I needed a change. My brother, Marc Zandell, has a shop on the edge of downtown Denver (Golden Triangle Auto Care) and he brought me into the shop to do some part time work. I fell in love with the process and the atmosphere. After leaving that shop I became partners in a shop closer to home. As I worked to grow that business , my love for the industry solidified … especially helping customers in keeping their family vehicles safe on the road.
During that time I met the most amazing group of people in the off-road world. That has become a passion both in business and personally. I love 4 wheeling and became enthralled with suspension, tires and upgrades that you can do to jeeps to climb rocks and still be stable. Whenever a customer comes into our shop with an idea for how to trick out their 4-wheel toys, we are all in and love helping them bring their vision to a reality.
Join us next time as we continue this series of conversations with Sheryl Brown, of InC Auto Repair Center located in the Cottonwood Shopping Center, Parker, Colorado.
