Shawn worked on cars with his father, which sparked his love for and interest in tractor trailer repairs. Over the years,
he continued to hone his craft and worked at several dealerships and independent shops along the way. He even acquired a
handful of certifications to prove his dedication. With his experience as a mechanic and leadership skills, Shawn thrives
as the co-owner of RPM TRUCK REPAIR. Though Donna doesn’t have a background as a mechanic, she does have a knack for accounting.
