“Just tell them, Yamahas and Nissans.”
Wes is the master of dents at Dents By Hand. A technical specialist in dent repair, Wes got his start at body shops with an original intent to become a painter but found his real calling when he started “pushing dents”.
Wes is a new owner of a Yamaha R6 and enjoys riding on mountain roads with his friends and is a lover of Nissan cars. You’ll find Wes in the back of the shop head down and focused on perfecting repairs on massively hail damaged vehicles; if he is working on your vehicle and you love Nissans and Yamaha’s too, step into the shop and say, "Hi"!
“I love working with people, after working with creative college students I feel like I can handle just about anything.”
Liz is a rock star office manager. She can multitask and go with the flow better than water. Most of her career was spent working as the assistant director in the Student Life division at Penn State and Penn College where she wrestled pythons and water moccasins that got loose in student Residence Halls (actually, she helped determine what to do with those adventurous students). Her experience in working with venturesome college students makes her an amazing customer service specialist and someone for insurance companies to reckon with.
“I work on cars in my spare time. That’s why my job really isn’t a job, I get to come and do what I love every day.”
