KAMRYN
CLOUGH

 

Fleet Manager

What do you like most about your job?

I like that every day is different! Somedays are filled with emails, paperwork, and phone calls, while others are spent driving to our different locations and back. There is always something to do.  

 

What did you do before you came to work here?

I worked my way up from cashier to store manager at Napa Auto Parts over the course of the last 7 years. Managing for the last 3 ½.  

 

What do you like to do on the weekends?

I enjoy hiking, specifically places with a waterfall or a nice view, then spending my evenings at the races with my family. When it is cold I can be found on the couch curled up with a book.  

 

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My last vacation was to a small island called Isla Mujeres, off the coast of Mexico.  

 

Sports?

I like to support my little brother by watching him play on his school’s varsity football and wrestling teams.  

 

When you were a little kid, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a psychiatric nurse. I loved the idea of helping others suffering from a range of emotional and mental distress; knowing most individuals lack a caring support system outside of hospital staff. I wanted to be there for some of the people that need it the most.  

 

Do you have any pets?

I have 3 dogs! Diesel is a 9yr old English Bulldog, Chubbs is a 3yr old Pit/Bulldog mix, and Claude is a 2yr old St. Bernard English Mastiff.  

 

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

I love painting in my free time.

Mechanical Designer 

What do you like most about your job?

The people I work with. They make coming to work enjoyable. Another aspect I really enjoy about my job is the constant challenge of solving unique problems. I like to get into the heart of the matter and find the best solutions. 

What did you do before you came to work here?

I was a Manufacturing Engineer at a Portable power tools manufacturing company in Newberg. I was also graduating from Portland State around the same time.

 

What do you like to do on the weekends?

I enjoy socializing with my friends and family. I like taking weekend trips around the city or exploring Oregon with them. It ranges from trying out a new restaurant to a weekend trip to the beach. It is usually very spontaneous and that brings excitement with it.

 

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My last vacation was a road trip with my parents across the east coast. It started in Chicago and ended in Atlanta. I was seeing my parents after 6 years and that trip was a wonderful way to make up for the time we had missed together.

What is something unique or surprising about you?

I have been honing my culinary skills. One of my specialties is making Biryani, a delicious Indian rice and meat dish. It is always a crowd-pleaser at potlucks.  

Sports?

I can talk about Cricket and Formula One all day every day.

When you were a little kid, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to be a pilot flying a commercial jet.

 

What is your claim to fame?

I was surprised (and proud) to discover that my best long jump distance in high school was the same as another fellow student who later went to become a professional athlete. 

Do you have any pets?

While I do not have a pet of my own, I adore spending time with my aunt’s Pomsky, Zahn, every weekend. When the weather is nice, we love going on runs and exploring different parks around the city. He is always ready for an adventure.

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

I am a bit of a mental math magician. I can do most basic calculations in my head, except for fractions, I keep having to double check them from time to time.
