Claire and Andrew have been together since 1995 where they met under the golden arches. While Andrew is taking care of the operations of the auto repair shop itself, Claire is tasked with business side of The Maintenance Shop. As office manager, she performs the accounting and financing side of the company.  She also works closely with our vendors to negotiate rates and terms.

When Claire is able to step away from that busy office, she likes to sit down with her string bass and pluck a few songs. When it’s an outdoor adventure she is looking for, you’ll probably find her on the slopes getting her ski on, after all, her favorite mode of transportation is a ski lift.
