I am married to my beautiful wife Peggy. We Live in Gig Harbor Washington. Our daughter in college at ASU in Tempe AZ and a son at Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma. Joined the Harnish Auto Family in July of 1998.
I grew up in Hawaii and lived there for 30 years. I've been in the car business for 34 years now and have been married the same amount of time to my beautiful wife Cheryl. We have 2 grown children. Tawny is 25 years old and just recently got engaged at the Taj Mahal in India. Tawny and her Fiancé travel the world blogging and producing travel videos. Our son Cody is 22 and just recently bought his first 2013 Subaru Crosstrek here. I enjoy hiking...especially the Grand Canyon and doing anything else outdoors. One of my favorite things at Subaru of Puyallup is the fun we have every day. I like to bring in "odd" food for everyone to try and see their reactions. Priceless!
Born and raised in Olalla, Washington I have always lived in the Puget Sound Region. Since I was young, I have had an extreme fascination with automobiles. Working on them in the garage with my dad, detailing them in the driveway in my early teens, wiring mind blowing stereo systems, and attending car shows to admire the work of others all along the way. I would like to think that I have a broad knowledge of just about anything to do with cars, and I am constantly trying to learn more. My other interests beyond cars include fishing, all terrain vehicles, my family, the outdoors, and travelling. After graduating from the University of Washington I worked for Costco for almost 10 years and I stumbled upon a new adventure selling Subaru's in Puyallup. After 30 plus years in rainy Washington and 4 years with Subaru you can say that I am more than a believer in Symmetrical All Wheel Drive and the quality product Subaru offers us to explore the Evergreen State. Believe it or not, in 2004, I met a wonderful woman while I was purchasing a car! I am that guy that has the story about buying an awesome car and meeting a beautiful woman named Carly. No the car did not get the girl! A few years later the car is since history and I married her. Recently we had a perfect little daughter, Mackenzie. Don't be surprised when you meet me that I brag about my two pretty girls that I get to go home to every day! Needless to say as much as I like cars, I love my girls. I look forward to meeting you and your family as I share my knowledge with you about these wonderful vehicles. Make it a great day!

I came to Tacoma in the 60"s and have been here ever since- Love it here! Would never go back to California except to visit.
Have been in "dealership" accounting most of my working life, except for one small stint with the IRS.
I find it an exciting environment with high energy co-workers.
My hobbies are shopping, eating out, gardening and getting together with family.
I used to collect antique dishes, but I ran out of room and don't do that anymore.
I love working, so maybe you can count that as a hobby with benefits!

I have always had a love affair with the automobile. Being at Subaru of Puyallup allows me to meet new interesting people everyday and to indulge in my passion of cars, all the while changing people's lives. It's a win win situation.
I've worked at Subaru of Puyallup for the past 3 years and have enjoyed just about every minute of it. I started out in detail washing cars but am glad I moved on to photography. The atmosphere at Subaru is always friendly, you always feel like a part of a team here. In my spare time I enjoy tinkering with electronics and reading about science and philosophy. The Subaru is life, The Subaru is love, The Subaru is everything.
I was born and raised in West Seattle and absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. After high school I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where I served eight years in the infantry. While serving with the Marines I had the tremendous opportunity of participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom and subsequently completed two combat tours in Iraq, with a third being aboard the U.S.S. Cleveland as a part of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit.
Since my release from active duty I have been attending college at the University level and am currently working on completing my Bachelors in Psychology. I recently moved back home to the Pacific Northwest after spending over a decade living in Southern California and could not be happier. While in the Marines I had the opportunity to see much of the world and still wholeheartedly believe that there isn't a better, more beautiful place in the world than this place we are blessed to live. I am brand new to the car business but am super excited for the opportunity to work for one of the most trusted auto makers in America.
I have been with the Harnish Auto Family and Subaru of Puyallup for over 8 years, and I thoroughly enjoy it. The organization is straightforward and trustworthy; a great place to work and to buy a car. I was born in Montana, attended school in Oregon, and have lived in the Puget Sound region for over 22 years now. My wife and I live near P. L. U. with our Schnauzer (a.k.a. child) and several fruit trees. You can reach me on my cell at 253.222.9099. Thanks!
My name is Jerry Harris. I've been in the auto industry since 2005. I graduated from Lake Washington Technical College and was working in the shop on cars. Since spending my own money on tools was getting expensive, I transitioned into sales.
I've been with the Harnish Auto Family since 1989. What's important to me? God, family, friends, (well maybe golf too), a good laugh, and doing business with mutual respect and honesty.
I look forward to meeting you.
Hi my name is Kirk Schroll. I used to work for Microsoft but hated staring at a screen for five years. I am much more of a people-person like my dad, Bob Schroll. I've been a part of the Harnish Auto Family for six months now. I play in a rock band that has been together for 13 years. On my days off I love to ride my bike. I am also an Eagle Scout.
I have worked for Harnish Auto Family for 24 years now. I was born and raised in Puyallup and still live in this great town. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Sabrina for 34 years. We have a 20 year old son (he is a mini version of me). Just one of my many hobbies is gardening. I enjoy anything and everything in my backyard and often bring in fresh veggies from my garden for everyone to enjoy.
I have had a love for cars my whole life. My mom will say I started naming car makes/models at 2 years old.
Just one of the many great things about my job is the friendships I have developed with my customers throughout the years I have been here. It's really fun to have 2nd and 3rd generations come back for their first cars.
I have been with Harnish Auto Family for 10 years. I also am a RN. I have been married to my wife Jeanne for 32 years. We raised 3 kids and now have 6 Grandkids. We also have 2 Jack Russell's and 400 moles in our yard. We live on 5 acres on the Puyallup River with our dogs (and the moles). I have a lot of passion for fun and love to white water raft, golf and ski. I love to take our Grandkids on fun adventures up on the mountains or just sitting at home watching them run crazy.

I have two amazing girls. We have a Great Dane, Mayzie and a tiny 4 lb Shorkie (Yorkie/Shih-Tzu) named Remington. (They're best friends) When I am not here, you most likely can find me on the water (at least on the warmer Northwest days). I spent my childhood sailing all over Washington and Canada and want my girls to have the same amazing experiences that I had. My girls love to come to Mommy's work and see everybody and of course the candy/cookies everyone sneaks them is a huge perk!
I have the world's best job! What's not to love... I work with amazing people, the atmosphere is fun and stress free, I meet alot of great people that I really enjoy helping and also keeping in touch with.
I am currently a student seeking an education in Mechanical Engineering. Outside of Subaru I am a freelance graphic designer and photographer.

I was born and raised in Tacoma and still live there with my wife Diane and our busy little boy Tucker( toddler years ). I am a Subaru Guru and I have owned my own Subaru for years.

I first became interested in mechanics at the young age of 5 years old. Glorified the sport of auto racing and quickly became my hobby and dream. All I ever thought about was racing and achieving my goal of being a professional racer. I met my wife at the age of 20 and knew she was the one for me because of our shared interests. We are currently spending our spare time perfecting a turbocharged ZX-14 built for drag racing.
At the age of 20 I attended Universal Technical Institute and graduated at the top of my class. I promptly started working at a Seattle area dealer in 2003. For the first 5 years I worked on Saabs. Then in 2008 the dealer switched over to Subaru and I worked at that dealer on Subaru's through 2013. I started working at Subaru of Puyallup in January of 2013. I am Subaru factory trained and ASE certified. I have been maintaining and repairing vehicles for over 12 years.

Hi my name is Andrew, I'm new to the Subaru family and could not be happier that I've been added me to their roster. When I'm not here at Subaru Puyallup I'm at my home in Graham consistently cleaning up after my Fiance and 3 year old son. When I have a spare few minutes I love to take my motorcycle for a quick joyride. But by the next morning I'm at work and ready to provide the best customer service you've had at a dealership! We hope to see you soon!
