She also enjoys fishing and is much more effective at fishing than her husband Dave.
Gary came to work for Parkin Electric in 1992 as an apprentice, coming from his family owned and operated HVAC company, Rose Heating and Cooling. Gary quickly rose thru the ranks to his current position due to his natural ability to identify with a customers vision, system requirements and the ability to provide the customer with cost effective solutions. System design and integration are key attributes that make Gary the top of his class. Fortunately, Gary’s main hobby is working. Other than that, he is an accomplished snowboarder, mountain biker and off-road ATV enthusiast.
Tonya came to Parkin Electric in 1997 as a receptionist. Her current duties include billing, scheduling, job tracking and project accounting. She has a great attitude and is well liked by all of our customers and employees. If there is a problem or need in billing or scheduling, Tonya is well known as the “go-to” person. Tonya’s hobbies include boating and camping. She does not however enjoy Ocean fishing. The results we found, are not pretty.
Amanda arrived from Hanna Industries. If you contact Parkin Electric, you will talk to Amanda. When you do talk to her, there will be no mistake, you will feel better. Amanda has an unexplainable cheery personality. Our saying in the office is “if you feel down, call Amanda”. She checks schedules with customers, coordinates utility connections, inspections and sub-contractors.
