1) What is your favorite MINI Cooper and why? Do you own a MINI? Does it have a name?
 My favorite MINI is the Mini Cooper GP2 because it’s a 211hp mini race car. The power to weight ratio is big enough to stomp on cars twice its size. I own a MINI a 2011 Cooper S named Pebbles.
2) What do you like most about being a Schomp MINI Genius?
 What I love most about being a Schomp MINI Genius is that no day is ever the same as the last. Interactions I have with MINI owners are always so much fun, these cars all have their own personalities and back stories and MINI owners can’t wait to tell me all about them. I could ask the same question to 100 people and get 100 different answers.
3) What can customers expect to learn from a MINI Genius? 
When customers come to see me they can expect a welcoming environment where there are no stupid questions. I will show my customers the ins and outs of their new MINI thoroughly and in a timely manner. My customers can expect leaving here having a new friend that they can reach out to at any time for any question about their car.
4) What are your hobbies outside of work?
 My hobbies outside of work include tinkering on my MINI (because racecar) drawing/painting, discovering new music, playing video games, & traveling to new places.

1) What is your favorite MINI Cooper and why? Do you own a MINI? Does it have a name? I do not own a MINI, but I love getting the privilege to drive them at work. My favorite often changes, as all the models are fun to drive, but currently my favorite would be the Convertible. It’s nice to look at and even more nice to drive. (Especially with the top down)
2) What do you like most about being a Schomp MINI Genius? What I like most about being a Schomp MINI Genius is the interaction we get to experience with our customers. We’re able to connect with our motorers, recognize names and faces that walk through the door, and stay in contact when any questions pop up.
3) What can customers expect to learn from a MINI Genius? Customers can expect to learn all about their MINIs, down to the door locks and window switches. If a question comes up that we do not have an answer to, we’re happy to research until we find the solution.
4) What are your hobbies outside of work? When I’m not at Schomp MINI, I spend a lot of time with my family, grilling out and watching football. I also love exploring all the fun and new things to do in our beautiful state.

1) What is your favorite MINI Cooper and why? Do you own a MINI? Does it have a name?
 My favorite Mini is the new Clubman, I believe it is a well-appointed vehicle with a refined feel. The club doors are an elegant surprise. I don’t own a Mini… yet, but my three series is named IGGY.
2) What do you like most about being a Schomp MINI Genius?
 Interacting with guests and sharing their excitement for their new baby are definitely the most rewarding aspects of being a Schomp Mini Genius.
3) What can customers expect to learn from a MINI Genius?
Customers can expect to have their questions answered without the pressure of talking numbers. It is kind of like an Apple Store where one-on-one learning can take place to fully enjoy the features of their new Mini.
4) What are your hobbies outside of work?
 Outside of work I love taking my Siberian Husky, Echo, into the mountains for adventures! Of course, driving a mountain road in sport mode is the cherry on top. Although I don’t here, I am obsessed with sailing, too.

1) What is your favorite MINI Cooper and why? Do you own a MINI? Does it have a name?
 Every MINI has it’s own quirks and character so honestly I find it sort of difficult to pick a favorite, but if I had to it would have to be the Countryman only because I currently own one and I adore that car, its name would be Watson.
2) What do you like most about being a Schomp MINI Genius? 
I think the best part about being a MINI Genius is the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the vehicles and also having the chance at meeting new people, along with being able to be of any assistance to anyone who may need it using the information I have learned at MINI and continue to learn.
3) What can customers expect to learn from a MINI Genius?
 Our customers can expect the “Boot to Bonnet Experience”, meaning we are more than happy to deliver all the bells and whistles that these cars have to offer along with answering any other questions they may have about MINIs as well.
4) What are your hobbies outside of work? 
In my free time I enjoy the outdoors by running and hiking, but when I need to relax you can find me curled up with a book or drawing in my sketchpad.
