Dustin has been an owner of NEA since 2012 and became the sole owner in 2017. He has been in the automotive industry professionally for 17 years. He started out helping his dad around the shop when he was young. He went to Vermont Technical College for Automotive Technology and graduated in 2006 with an associate's degree in automotive science.
He is now an advanced level ASE master certified technician and excels at making mom jokes and pulling pranks on the guys and occasionally the customers. He loves his job, crew and customers.
In July of 2017 Dustin welcomed a son, Ryan and has had a hard time putting him down since. His five dogs aren't thrilled to share the attention but are getting used to it. Dustin is STILL building his house but swears he is almost done...for real.
