    Sales Manager

    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!

    Sales Manager

    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!

    Subaru of Puyallup is a one of a kind dealership. It is a fun, light hearted place filled with people who aren't afraid of joking with each other and having a good time. Stress Free!!

    Office Manager

    I was born in New Mexico and Raised in California.

    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!

  • Chris Forest
    Subaru Certified Sales Consultant

    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.

  • Dave Warmack
    Certified Subaru Sales Consultant

    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 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 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.

    Troy Gilson

    I have been with Subaru of Puyallup for 13 years now and have had many different roles in the Parts Department. I have been the Parts Manager for about 4 years now and have a great team with me.

    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 am what some would say a "home body" enjoying time with my family and all the new words my son learns. Although I do like to go out with my co-workers after work and try any new local restaurants in the area.

    I enjoy helping my customers get their part questions answered and also helping them get the right accessories for their Subaru's.

  • Danny Dahl
    Service Advisor

    I was born in Florida, but have spent the majority of my life here in the wonderful Pacific Northwest. I'm fluent in 9 languages, however, only one of them is spoken, while the others are typed - computer programming. I've always had a keen understanding of the relationship between electronic and mechanical components; naturally this lead to my love for the automotive field. My garage is home to a 2007 WRX, 2004 Forester XT, and a Honda S2000. I'm grateful to be a part of the truly exceptional team here at Subaru of Puyallup. I couldn't ask for a more stress-free environment in which to work or better customers to share my passion with.
