  • Crystal Poczynek
    Sales Consultant Extraordinare

    Crystal previously worked as a Personal Fitness Trainer in Sherwood, Oregon for over 5 years. She had earned her Bachelors degree at Portland State in Health and Fitness. Unfortunately, the industry was crippled by Covid. Seeking advice and support from a friend that worked at Jim Doran Auto, she was blindsided when he offered her a position in Automotive Sales. 

    "I never considered this type of career but I am so thankful for the opportunity." She stated. It just so happens that years of refined customer service skills give her an advantage to connect with people. 

    When asked what she like about working here, she said: "I am because I enjoy being of service and assisting people in making exciting decisions for themselves and their family. I like coming to work and seeing my coworkers who make me feel welcome and appreciated. That is my favorite part!"

    We randomly hit Crystal with some questions:

    Favorite food: Cookies!

    Favorite Drink: Coffee

    Favorite Activity: Hiking

    Place to Visit: The Caribbean
